The U.K.-based gardening mail order firm Thompson and Morgan introduced the hybrid tomato-potato TomTato plant on Thursday. The Potato Tom hit New Zealand garden centers earlier this week.

Once planted, the TomTato looks like a standard tomato plant, sprouting more than 500 cherry tomatoes. But pulling it out of the soil reveals a full-grown patch of white potatoes hanging from the roots.

The plant lasts for one season, with the tomatoes and potatoes ripening at the same time. The firm says can be grown indoors or outdoors, in a regular 40-liter bag or pot. It is not genetically modified, as it was created through a process called grafting.

I'm impressed with this grafting technique and it sure gives us more yield from smaller farming spaces. This may be the way of future food growing methods to help feed the ever-growing human populations.
