There are, in fact, seedless tomatoes. This is a by-product of hybridization. The first fruits to form on the tomato plant will be seedless - or will have immature seeds. As the season progresses, the plant will set fruit that has some viable seeds within it, so that by the time the last fruits of the season are produced, they will have seeds. (That's where seeds come from for growing seedless tomatoes!)
