These plants  must grow super fast as they are twice as big as the shipping container, folded over in it. They have a couple blooms already.
Dang it people, I have to quit  reading the forum./ I only have so much space, earthboxes, and not to mention money.

Great Paul...thanks! NOT! Now I just had to order 2. My husband is going to kill me!

Has anyone tried to root the tomato plant suckers to make new plants?

Nope, we have no place to plant them

I think you would just get a plant as the original grafted part and nothing like a hybrid or super plant.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
