TITLE

Transgenic Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum)

ABSTRACT

The cultivated tomato, Lycopersicon esculentum, is one of the most important vegetable crops worldwide. It is the number one vegetable crop for fresh consumption and approximately one third of the total world yield is consumed in processed form (FAO 1995; Tomato News 1998). The present wide geographical distribution of this species, which originated in South America, was achieved by breeding for adaptation to diverse growth conditions, and for resistance to old and new plant diseases. Development of sophisticated agricultural techniques, mainly closely controlled greenhouse practices, has required breeding for highly reproductive elite cultivars specifically adapted to such growth regimes. Breeding for resistance to plant pathogens has gained extreme importance with increasing public awareness of the negative environmental effects of various pesticides and fungicides, and interest in “health food” has promoted breeding for a high content of certain substances, such as anti-oxidants and vitamins. The development of the processing industry has called for breeding of a completely different array of agronomic traits, including a vegetative growth habit and fruit qualities suitable for mechanical harvest and processing. Moreover, today the processing industry demands different fruit properties from varieties intended for diverse processed products ranging from juice, ketchup and pastes to canned peeled tomatoes and dried raisin tomatoes.
