The 'Ketchup 'n' Fries' Plant Exists, And It's Coming To America

A ketchup and French fry plant exists. You can pluck the fresh dipping sauce straight from the vine, and dig up those crispy potato wonders simultaneously.

Well, sort of. The Grafted Ketchup 'n' Fries™ plant from the Territorial Seed Company allows gardeners to harvest potatoes and tomatoes from the same plant.

It's a pretty neat concept, considering the two kinds of produce grow very differently: Tomatoes are cultivated above ground and sprout from a vine. Potatoes, on the other hand, are grown from seed potatoes that are planted underneath soil.

Though it seems peculiar that these two very different plants could thrive together, Territorial Seed writes on its website that the process is all natural, free of genetic modification. The TomTato plant flourishes because tomatoes are part of the the potato family. Making a homemade dish of ketchup and fries (or a potato and tomato bake, patatas bravas or this handsome vegetable medley bake) will be an absolute breeze.

The dual plant ships to the U.S. and can be delivered in either April or May. Get your own here.
