THE PRESENT APPLICATION RELATES TO A METHOD FOR OBTAINING A SEEDLESS TOMATO, A TOMATO PLANT CARRYING SAID SEEDLESS TOMATOES OR CAPABLE OF CARRYING SAID SEEDLESS TOMATOES, OR CULTIVATION MATERIAL SUCH AS SEED FOR SUCH A TAMATO PLANT, COMPRISING A. PROVIDING A FIRST TOMATO PLANT, THAT IS HOMOZYGOTE RECESSIVE WITH REGARD TO THE PROPERTIES PARTHENOCARPY (PK,PK) AND FUNCTIONAL STERILITY (FS, FS);B. PROVIDING A SECOND TOMATO PLANT, THAT IS HOMOZYGOTE RECESSIVE WITH REGARD TO THE PROPERTIES PARTHENOCARPY (PK,PK) AND FUNCTIONAL STERILITY (FS,FS);C. CROSSING THE FIRST AND SECOND TOMATO PLANT FOR THE PRODUCTION OF CULTIVATION MATERIAL, SUCH AS SEED, WHICH IS HOMOZYGOTE RECESSIVE WITH REGARD TO THE PROPERTIES PARTHENOCARPY (PK,PK) AND FUNCTIONAL STERILITY (FS,FS);D. OPTIONALLY THE CULTIVATION OF THE CULTIVATION MATERIAL THUS OBTAINED INTO A TOMATO PLANT CAPABLE OF CARRYING THE SEEDLESS TOMATOES;E. OPTIONALLY CULTIVATING SAID TOMATO PLANT UNTIL IT CARRIES THE SEEDLESS TOMATOES, AND HARVESTING THE SEEDLESS TOMATOES THUS OBTAINED.STEP C IS CARRIED OUT BY SCISSORING OR CUTTING, FOLLOWED BY SCRAPING OF THE POLLEN TUBE CLOSED BY THE PHENOTYPE OF FUNCTIONAL STERILITY. THE OBTAINED TOMATO PLANT IS PREFERABLY A HYBRID. THE FURTHER RELATES TO CULTIVATION MATERIAL FOR TOMATOES SUCH AS SEED, TOMATO PLANTS AS WELL AS A SEEDLESS TOMATO, OBTAINABLE ACCORDING TO THE ABOVEMENTIONED METHOD, AS WELL AS A PROCESSED PRODUCT ON A TOMATO BASIS OBTAINED FROM SUCH SEEDLESS TOMATOES. FINALLY, THE INVENTION RELATES TO THE PARENT LINES AS WELL AS A METHOD FOR OBTAINING THESE PARENT LINES.
