Mighty 'Mato Heirloom Tomatoes Are Better For The Environment

SAN DIEGO, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mighty 'Mato, the first line of grafted tomato plants available to home gardeners in North America, makes heirloom tomatoes achievable in any home garden. By the process of grafting, Mighty 'Mato plants are disease-resistant, allowing less need for chemical usage in home gardens.


"Conventional tomatoes in grocery stores are hybridized and grown with chemicals to increase shelf-life and resilience for shipping, causing them to lack the flavor, texture and nutrients that draw people to the fruit in the first place," says John Bagnasco of the GardenLife Radio Show. "Without any need to use chemicals due to disease-resistance, Mighty 'Mato plants are sustainable and better for the environment, while preserving the taste and health value of the original heirloom tomato."

Generally, heirloom tomatoes are difficult to grow. By the process of grafting, Mighty 'Mato has made it possible to grow unique heirloom varieties with improved tolerance to temperature extremes and swings. Not only do these plants do better in a range of climates, they produce bigger, better and longer harvests with more yield per plant.

"Eating organically and avoiding chemicals is undoubtedly a progressive trend," says Bagnasco. "Mighty 'Mato plants have become a foolproof solution for home gardeners who desire a healthy alternative with quality assurance. Heirloom tomatoes that are easier to grow with superior defenses against nationwide soil-borne diseases and pests, this is the future of home gardening."

Mighty 'Mato plants are available at garden centers nationwide. Thirty-three varieties of Mighty 'Mato plants can be ordered at and shipped throughout the country in time for local planting schedules. Grafted vegetables may also be purchased by mail order from Territorial Seed Co., Totally Tomatoes, Vermont Bean and Jung Seed Company.
