Seedless tomatoes do exist, and are quite tasty. The first fruits to develop have few, or no seeds, but the last fruits to ripen late in the season do contain seeds. That's where the seeds come from for seedless tomatoes! The fruit is parthenocarpic,meaning the blossoms don't have to be pollinated to produce fruit. Seeds for seedless tomatoes are available from Territorial Seed Company, P. O. Box 157, Cottage Grove, OR 97424 Phone (541) 942-09547. The varieties of seedless tomatoes include: Oregon Spring, Siletz, and Santiam.
