There are, indeed, varieties of seedless tomatoes. They are parthenocarpic and do not require pollination to set fruit. However, only the earliest maturing tomatoes will be seedless. Those produced later in the season will contain seeds (that's wherethe seeds come from for growing seedless tomatoes!) These varieties are seedless: Oregon Spring, Santiam and Siletz. They're available from Territorial Seed Company, P. O. Box 157, Cottage Grove, OR 97424 Phone (541) 942-9547

The taste and quality of these tomatoes is equal or better than any other tomato.
