Wild species and primitive cultivated forms of the tomato will probably continue to serve as valuable sources of germ plasm for the breeding of improved varieties. Resistance to a series of devastating diseases, for example, has been bred into new tomato varieties. One of the aims of the present program is to determine the limits of tomato species hybridization and to investigate the nature of inheritance in the hybrid combinations.
