No.  From what I understand, it is a 'Wild' tomato variety that produces non-tasty fruit, but has a robust root system.  So, you get the benefits of both by grafting.  This from their promo site   http://www.gardenmediagroup.com/archived-articles/155-supernaturals-grafted-vegetables   

"...Growing tried and true tomatoes on wild tomato stock has created a super-natural tomato plant that produces huge harvests of healthier, heartier tomatoes, whether hybrid or heirloom,? says horticulturalist John Bagnasco..."

Interesting, Territorial seed has it listed as a hybrid. Maybe that's a mistake. I'm very interested to see how grafted tomatoes do in my garden and might be interested in grafting my own someday. I love experimenting.

Something I'm really interested in is the possibility that grafted tomatoes might be less prone to blossom rot. I can't grow paste varieties in my earthboxes because, even in the old previously dolomited mix, I loose most of them to blossom rot.

For those who have trialed the 'Mighty Mato' and would like to experiment with thier own grafting of preferred tomato varieties using the 'Supernatural Rootstock' used with the 'Mighty Mato' product line, you can purchase rootstock seeds from:

http://www.territorialseed.com/product/14338/603
https://awhaley.com/seeds/root-stocks/supernatural-tomato-rootstock

Don't forget to set up one 'Supernatural Rootstock' plant for seed collection at the end of the season - you will then have a perpetual no-cost source for this valuable tomato rootstock.  And if you collect seeds from your other tomato varieties, it would be a good idea to keep your 'Supernatural Rootstock' plant as far away from your other tomato varieties as possible to reduce the chance of cross pollination/DNA contamination.

So the Supernatural stock isn't a hybrid?

For those wanting an update, mine have now reached the top of the pea fences. Loaded with tomatoes and blooms too.  Some are big enough to pick if they weren't green as can be

I'm still waiting for Burpee to ship mine. They won't be here until mid May. I hope they do as well as yours are.

I ran across this video on utube and it gives a lot of detail.  I think I might try it for the late crop.

I ran across this on youtube, hope you can play it.
Has anyone tried this method? If yes does it work.
Too late for us down here so I plan to try it in the fall

Then stinkbugs wouldn't ruin our tomatoes.   Lightning and low flying aircraft would.

Watch Earthbox come out next year with a box the size of a bathtub.

I am also trying grafted tomatoes this year for the first time. I ordered mine from Burpee.

Just get yourself out there and find us some bigger pea fences

Update-.  I just went outside and really inspected them. Hard to do as the inside of those pea fences are seriously stuffed.



That Black Krim is frickin' loaded with tomatoes.
