Independent spontaneous triploid tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) were collected among diploid hybrids growing in commercial greenhouses. Ploidy levels were verified by counting chromosomes, and the donor of the double genome dose was determined by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis. The TG101 probe, which is tightly linked to the Tm-2a locus, revealed different restriction patterns between TMV-resistant and TMV-susceptible parent lines. The parent donor which provided two genomes to the triploid was identified by comparing the relative intensity of alleles in the triploid with that in the diploid. The results indicate that both parents can serve as a double genome donor.
