Using nothing more than grafting -- and plenty of experimentation -- the TomTato, a plant that can deliver tomatoes and potatoes, is now commercially available to the public.

Our friends and former colonial rulers across the pond are going bonkers for the TomTato, a new type of tomato and potato-yielding plant. Longstanding British seed company Thompson and Morgan rolled out the new variety last week, the first of its kind to be made commercially available to the public. But as much as the TomTato looks like something ripped from an anti-GMO nightmare, it actually isn?t genetically engineered at all.
