Grafted Tomato Yields Ketchup 'n' Fries!
The TomTato is a single plant that produces both tomatoes and potatoes at the same time. Created by UK horticulture company Thompson and Morgan, the TomTato plant is not a result of genetic engineering. It is "simply" the top of a cherry tomato plant and the bottom of a white potato plant, that have been grafted together at the stem.

According to the company, the TomTato's fruits have a brix (sugar content) level higher than that of most supermarket tomatoes, along with "just the right level of acidity that only the tastiest tomatoes have". The potatoes are said to be fine for boiling, mashing or roasting.
