jbuist: Uh, you graft a tomato onto a potato. Not exactly rocket surgery here.
Mangoose: Murphy Brown called. She wants her Quayle joke back.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: jbuist: Uh, you graft a tomato onto a potato. Not exactly rocket surgery here.Perhaps not/but it's definitely plant surgery

neuroflare: KarmicDisaster: [thezipdownlow.files.wordpress.com image 528x400]/hotI'm glad to see we have the important things covered already
DeArmondVI: But still no word yet on the development of the tomeato.
mongbiohazard: The firm said the plants last for one season and by the time the tomatoes are ready for picking, the potatoes can be dug up.As a gardener, that doesn't sound so great. here in MD I get numerous harvests from my tomato plants, usually right through into September. If I had to pull the plant up to get the potatoes I'd miss out on a lot of tomatoes and would be harvesting a bunch of immature ones. You can even see in the picture in TFA that many of the tomatoes are under ripe, or even green.Better to plant two separate plants.
Mega Steve: DeArmondVI: But still no word yet on the development of the tomeato.Is that some kind of tomato-book crossbreed?
Major-General: What do you mean new? I remember those for sale 25 years ago.
jake_lex: Thanks for the nostalgia, Subby, and allowing me to return, for a little while, to a time when Dan Quayle was considered to be the dumbest politican who ever lived.Oh, those innocent, halycon days before we knew of the existence of Sarah Palin, and before the Teabaggers came charging in.
meat0918: That's not a hybrid plant. It's grafted.There's a difference.
AmbassadorBooze: meat0918: That's not a hybrid plant. It's grafted.There's a difference.came here to say that. I work in an agricultural industry, and every time I hear people (in my industry) refer to grafted plants as hybrids, I want to choke them out while screaming "look what you made me do!"./I might need therapy
Sid_6.7: Mangoose: Murphy Brown called. She wants her Quayle joke back.She just called me and told me to tell you you're fired.
artthehypnotist: Years ago, in high school, I was taking a Horticulture Class. We did some Grafting.One Kid Grafted 5 different colors of roses on one bush.I did a 1/4 cut and put 4 fruits on the same base. Orange, Tangerine, Lemon and Lime.I remember they had to be in the same Family.
meat0918: What kills me is people that think Hybrid = GMO.
