Article: Grafted Tomato Plants

Original article: Grafted toms
Same article (slightly longer) with pictures: Here’s the hottest thing in tomatoes this year
Quote:
The hottest thing in tomato-growing this spring is a new breed of grafted tomatoes called Mighty Mato. These are classic varieties...as well as heirloom tomatoes...that been grafted onto special solanum rootstock to create better disease resistance and more robust yields.

In B.C., Mighty Matos are being made available to local garden centres by Heritage Perennials in Abbotsford.

Re: Article: Grafted Tomato Plants

I have not seen any of these in Nanaimo yet. Nor have I found the Superbeefsteaks. Also this year no one appears to be carrying Tomaccios (the raisin tomato). Can anyone point me to a BC supplier for any of these?
