The District Agricultural Officers from each of these districts were contacted to obtain lists of 10 to 20 villages where tomato and at least 2 other solanaceous
crops were being cultivated.
These reasons suggest that the biochemical profile of tomato may be unique in comparison to other solanaceous
But then genetic engineering can even reconfigure the eggplant and other solanaceous
varieties to enhance or subtly change the color, flavor, shape, or texture to give the consumer a wider variety of characteristics from which to choose.

A true Solanaceous
oddity is the Litchi Tomato (Solanum sisymbriifolium), which is a spectacularly armed thorny plant, which would ward off most predators, including humans.
Interestingly, all CaM genes in pear were disrupted by the first intron at the Gly26 codon, which has been previously reported in Arabidopsis and solanaceous
CaMs [7, 26].
In addition, GRANDEVO and VENERATE are registered in Mexico for use on Solanaceous
crops, including tomato, pepper, chili, eggplant and potato for thrips, beet armyworm and both nymphs and adults of potato psylla; Berry crops, including strawberry, raspberry and blackberry for red mites and two-spotted spider mites, as well as Cole crops, including broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and brussels sprouts for diamond-back moth.
The potato psyllid, Bactericera cockerelli Sulk (Hemiptera: Triozidae), also known as the tomato psyllid, is an insect pest on many important solanaceous
vegetable crops grown in California.
The identification of ortho logs for the majority of genes differentially expressed in recovered tissues in two major solanaceous
crop species provides the basis for future comparative analyses of the viral recovery process.
Eggplant is one of the important solanaceous
crops that are widely grown in tropics and subtropics.
