grafted tomatoes

as a general non-contributor to this forum (altho' I of course do grow tomatoes) please forgive but just wondered what the feelings were about grafted tomatoes. This little craze has been going for around 3 years in the UK although I regard it with deepest scepticism, not least because of the horrendous prices (around 30 times more expensive than a seed grown plant and 5 times as much as an average plug plant).
Last year, grafted peppers appeared on the market too. Scam or worthwhile?

RE: grafted tomatoes

Below is a link to a search I did here at GW about grafted tomatoes and there are several threads about it with the opinions of others.

I have my own opinion but will wait until you have a chance to read those threads. ( smile)

RE: grafted tomatoes

Oh, cheers, Carolyn. I cannot see any reason to go for these as the only really annoying problems for me in East Anglia are blight (and crappy summers). I grow about 50 or so for making sauce mostly and get a regular smith period update so I can rush out with the bordeaux if needed. Also, i like to keep things as simple as possible (and, as a poor jobbing gardener, as cheap) so I am thinking that grafted toms are going to remain in theoryland.
