It is now possible to grow tomatoes and potatoes on the same shrub thanks to the TomTato plant. UK gardening company Thompson & Morgan created the hybrid plant that is capable of growing potatoes underground and tomatoes on its leaves. The plant took 15 years of development and is able to produce a high yield of both vegetables.

The top of the TomTato plant is capable of producing up to 500 cherry tomatoes while its bottom can grow up to four pounds of white potatoes. Being able to grow two vegetables in one pot and on one plot is great for urban farmers and commercial farmers alike as it doubles the yield without doubling costs or space needed. The TomTato is currently on sale now for $24.
