David's Garden Seeds offers generative tomato rootstock — the type that directs more energy into fruit production — and vegetative tomato rootstock — the type that directs more energy into growing leaves and stems. Available in organic and conventional form, both types are selected to deliver the important benefits of tomato grafting: improved production and crop health; reduced or eliminated pesticide use; and lengthened harvest duration.
Tomato Rootstock Estamino 25 Non-GMO, Organic, Hybrid Seeds
Organic generative rootstock.Estamino is a strong, generative rootstock that puts a high proportion of energy into fruit. Easier to balance than Maxifort. Especially useful for tomatoes in cultivation for six months or less, in unheated hoophouses, or with small-fruited (less than 100 gm) varieties. Good disease package for soil. High resistance to Fusarium wilt races 1, 2, and 3, Fusarium crown and root rot, leaf mold, nematodes, tomato mosaic virus, tomato spotted wilt virus, and Verticillium wilt. For use as rootstock only. Seed has been organically primed to improve germination.
Tomato Rootstock Maxifort 25 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
Vigorous, vegetative rootstock for large fruits and long-season cropping. Grow tomato rootstock to add disease resistance and much improved plant vigor for an extended harvest. Maxifort adds a very high level of vigor. High resistance to Fusarium (races 1 and 2), Fusarium root rot, nematodes, corky root rot, tobacco mosaic virus, and Verticillium wilt. Disease resistance is not transferred to the scion plant. NOTE: Maxifort should be used for rootstock only. If left to grow on its own, the fruit produced is small, stays green, and is not good for consumption. Primed seed for improved germination. NOTE: With Maxifort, you may experience uneven germination in some conditions.
All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to
maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific
locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and
nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in
your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
