Default Seedless tomato ?

I had a friend ask if i knew where he could get seedless tomato seeds. I have never heard of such and I am thinking he was talking about a tomato that don't produce many seeds. Anyone here have any information if such a tomato exist? I know that some varieties put out few seeds, but one called a seedless type is news to me. any information would be appreciated.

Seems Burpee have some. And no I'm not paying $8.39 + shipping for 15 seeds.

The same way you can have seedless watermelon seeds.
The bananas we eat from the store are not found in nature.

I do get it that many people with diseases like Crohn's and IBS are looking for seedless vegetables.

Otherwise, it kind of defeats the whole purpose of cycle of life... but that is just my opinion.
(and I think the same about seedless grapes and seedless watermelons.. )

A lady once asked me if I could recommend seedless tomatoes as seeds caused a severe irritation of her intestinal tract. I searched all the documents and lists I could find and picked up several varieties. I could give the lady the following varieties after testing them :


Very few seeds : Gigantesque Hongrois Italian paste Kellog’s breakfast Livingston beauty Opalka

Few seeds : Andes Bulls heart Carbon Cuor de bue Erika from Australia Gigantesque Ispolin Japanese Oxheart Kellog’s breakfast


You can take your pick !

These autoimmune reactions maybe from the lectins, which is talked about by Dr. Gundry, and found most in the skin and seeds. Appear you can destroy much of the lectins by pressure cooking too.

Fortunately for me I don't have issues with eating tomatoes.

It is also a matter of those afflicted with Diverticulosis - cracks in the inner surface of the colon. Small hard particles and some seeds that the person can't or just doesn't properly digest may get lodged in one of these cracks and begin a serious infection, including peritonitis.

I dont care for seeds either, and when cooking and/or making sauces, I use a tomato press to get only the pulp, no seeds nor skins. The juice itself is a great substitute for eating tomatoes fresh, and only differs from the solid fruit by its texture. I often use it as a dressing, in salads, dips and other -and of course in bloody mary's.

There are several varieties that are parthenocarpic early in the season so at that time won't have seeds. Most of them are varieties from Oregon State like Oregon Spring and Oregon Star. There are several more but I would have to look them up. Later on tho they will have seeds. I'm not sure if they still would if you kept them isolated or bagged the flowers.

Many heart tomatoes are almost seedless like Orange Russian.

Stuffer tomatoes have all the seeds in a clump so you can scoop them out easily. However, many are bland.
