Pick-&-Joy® Potatom is a rather unique tomato and potato plant full of surprises – a must-have for the vegetable garden or terrace. This very special produces both tomatoes and potatoes! Potatom requires more attention than other Pick-&-Joy® fruiting vegetables. Potatom comes as a juvenile plant, so no fruit will have yielded when you receive it. You need to take good care of Potatom before you can enjoy its delicious tomatoes and potatoes! A pleasant and delicious challenge!
Here are some tips to get the most out of your Potatom plant. After receiving your Potatom, move the plant to a large pot or, better yet, plant it in the ground. This can be either in the vegetable garden or in the greenhouse. Support the plant using a stick or, for extra sturdiness, tie to the wire. Remove side shoots from the tomato plant and potato shoots above the earth. If keeping your Potatom in a greenhouse, regularly tap the branch or flower trusses to stimulate pollination. You will then be able to harvest the tomatoes after eight to ten weeks.
Potatom produces around 40 to 80 cherry tomatoes. These cherry tomatoes are healthy, delicious, and crunchy. At the end of the season when all tomatoes have been plucked, cut off the stem and leave the crop for a few weeks. The potatoes will then ripen in the ground. You can dig them up after ten to fourteen days. Turn over the ground gently to receive the ultimate reward. You should be able to unearth 1 to 2 kg of potatoes! The potatoes are from the well-known Allias variety – a firm, small to medium yellow potato. They are firm-boiling and taste delicious. Enjoy!
