This rootstock is known for producing plants with good generative growth, meaning a better balance of flowers and fruit to leafy growth, resulting in heavier yields of tomatoes. It is also known to promote a longer production cycle, extending the season. Resistant to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus. This is a well-proven rootstock variety favored by an increasing number of growers.
This vigorous rootstock is resistant to a multitude of soil-borne diseases and nematodes. Use this rootstock to graft onto any heirloom or hybrid tomato plant and witness the greatly increased vigor and yields. The rootstock even boosts tolerance to fluctuating temperatures. This variety should only be used for rootstock because the small green fruit produced by rootstock are not good for consumption. Resistant to verticillium wilt, fusarium, nematodes, and tomato mosaic virus.
Grafting clips attach the scion to the rootstock of a grafted plant.
These clips can be sterilized with disinfectants for reuse and to prevent transfer of pathogens. If you prefer to heat-treat them, for example in boiling water, the 1.7mm, 2.0mm, and 2.5mm clips are made of silicone and can withstand the heat. The 3.5mm clips are unsuited to high temperatures and will melt.
