    so today my women and I were checking out my taters in the garden and she says to me look there's tomatoes growing off the potato plant..
    I was baffald, I've grown potatoes off and on for years and never have I seen this happen. so I got on line and looked it up and to my surprise potatoes do grow green like tomatoes or " fruit" .. turns out these are the seeds .. potatoes flower and some time Will produre fruit but it's not that common anymore..
    both the potato and tomato are in the same nightshade family. but unlike tomatoes these fruit are toxic/poisonous 0920171532.jpg PART95150593627031195IMG952017092095153629.jpg 0920171532.jpg

    yeah, I guess they can be graphted together because of them being in the same family .. I seen them grafted with each other when I was searching for this ansewer

    yeah, it's fall here so there a lot of leaves coming down. I compost them after I mulch them and bag them with my riding mower

    Potatoes are prized because they grow a lot of calories per acre, more than most other plants. Increasing this further by having the same plant grow tomatoes above ground is a fascinating possibility.
