An even greater use of the tomato as a food plant than at present may be possible through the breeding of more productive varieties having higher nutritive value and vitamin-C content. Such varieties might be developed by incorporating in the cultigen, Lycopersicon esculentum, certain desirable genes found in closely related species. For this purpose further genetic studies are necessary, and the development of suitable plant-breeding methods.
