Lycopersicon is a genus which included tomatoes and some species of nightshades. First removed from the genus Solanum by Philip Miller in , its removal leaves the latter genus paraphyletic, so modern botanists usually accept the names in Solanum. The name Lycopersicon is still used by gardeners, farmers, and seed e issues: Many. Abstract. The Andean region is the center of origin of the genus Lycopersicon, and it is generally believed that the first domestication of the tomato occurred in probably, the wild cherry tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum var. cerasiforme) was transported to Mexico from uently, during the 16th century, it was spread widely to Asian, Pacific and European countries, as well Cited by: Lycopersicon was a genus in the flowering plant family Solanaceae (the nightshades and relatives). It contained about 13 species in the tomato group of nightshades. First removed from the genus Solanum by Philip Miller in , its removal leaves the latter genus paraphyletic, so modern botanists generally accept the names in Solanum.

1. Introduction. Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) is one of the most important and popular fruit vegetable in the is a self-pollinated annual crop and belongs to the family Solanaceae with chromosome number 2n = 2x = 24 (Jenkins, , Peralta et al., ).The phylogenetic classification of the family Solanaceae has recently revised and the genus Lycopersicon . The tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) (Fig. 1) and its wild relatives (genus Solanum, section Lycopersicon) originated in western South America . New nomenclature for Lycopersicon.

Tomato, Lycopersicon esculentum Miller (2n = 2x = 24), is one of the most important vegetable crops of Solanaceae grown all over the world. It is a native of South America and Mexico. It is an important source of minerals, vitamins, and health acids. This chapter reviews the origin and history of the tomato. • The Introduction provides background information about tomato botany and culture, seed production and quality assurance, and container production of transplants. Among the new topics addressed are the change in nomenclature, in which the genus Lycopersicon was classified as Solanum section Lycopersicon, and the sequencing of the tomato genome. The wild tomato group Solanum Section Lycopersicon contains both self-incompatible and self-compatible taxa. In addition to several transitions from SI to SC that are well documented (Igic et al. Peralta et al. () list this genus as a synonym with "Amatula flava Medikus [=Solanum lycopersicum L.]" as its type, but fail to cite a typification authority .
