The tomato grafting experiment is on! These are Ananas Noire heirlooms. The one at right, grafted on Maxifort stock, is more than double the size of the non grafted one at left. That is true for 3 of the 4 different varieties reported on. Next is to see how production goes. Clearly, more plant, more tomatoes! The expectation is THREE Times the growth! At this point, I believe it! Learn more
Currently Maxifort seeds are $23 for 50 seeds from Johnny’s. Yes, expensive, but well worth it for the return. Split a pack with another gardener! Grow Maxifort rootstock to add disease resistance and much improved plant vigor for an extended harvest. They are resistant to crown rot and corky root. KNOW THIS: Disease resistance is not transferred to the scion plant (the one on top). Take the same good care of your tomatoes as always.
