MINNEAPOLIS - Tomatoes are very popular there is no question, so why not put the best roots on your favorite tomato and see what could happen.

This is called grafting tomatoes and grafted plants has been done for years in many other parts of the country, but not in the United States because of legalities.

That has changed now and you can get grafted tomatoes in the United States and in Minnesota it might be hard to find one, but if you come across one grab it.

We found a few at the Linder's Garden Market's last week.

Here are a few articles to explain:
