Grafted tomatoes

puzzlefan(5)January 20, 2013

Planning for limited use gardening and only tomatoes in containers, I am considering grafted tomato plants. Has anyone used these; comments?

I have had great results with grafted tomatoes. You mentioned containers...a traditional tomato plant needs at least a 15 gallon container. Grafts, due to their larger root system, need even more. Half wine barrels are perfect!

Puzzlefan, I didn't take the timeto read the link Dave gave,and I probably participated in some of them, but I see you're in a zone 5 area so you have few if any soilborne diseases.Rootstock and grafting is directed against soilborne diseases.

What's most common in zone 5 and similar are the fungal and bacterial foliage diseases, and off hand I don't know of any rootstock out there that helps with foliage diseases.
