Grafted Tomato Plants – F1 Crimson Collection

Grafted Tomato Plants – F1 Crimson Collection Enjoy all 4 blight-resistant varieties! Grafting onto specific rootstocks, of course, creates bigger, better, more disease-resistant plants with increased yield. Consequently, we believe, the extra vigour which the plant obtains will provide even better protection to late Blight attack, and the plants will grow away from any infection even more rapidly. Therefore, our Grafted Tomato Crimson Collection contains 4 varieties (1 of each) with the best tolerance to late blight disease we have ever seen.

Grafting onto specific rootstocks of course creates bigger, better, more disease-resistant plants with increased yield. Consequently, we believe, the extra vigour which the plant obtains will provide even better protection to late Blight attack, and the plants will grow away from any infection even more rapidly. This variety is unique in that it has two resistance genes to Phytopthera infestans (Late Blight), giving it full resistance to all strains of blight currently found in the UK. So if blight spores come into contact with the plant the infection will not spread throughout the plant. It's been bred using natural methods and has been tested throughout the breeding process using Marker Assisted Selection (MAS). Please note: With regards to the nature of the blight resistance, plants can still show infection (up to 15-20%) of leaves, stems, etc. without effecting fruit quality or yield. The plants having the resistance to be able to grow away from the attack.
