Abstract Following a decision at the ECPGR Solanaceae Working Group meeting in September 2001 in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, VIR, Russian Federation took responsibility to develop a searchable database for tomato germplasm. Passport data of many countries were gathered but several technical problems were encountered in the management of files which delayed the creation of the European Tomato Database. In May 2007 Web access to the European tomato collection was opened on VIR’s Web site but the passport data of the European accessions were presented as spreadsheets and were not easily searchable. Considering the urgency and importance of having an on-line searchable European Tomato Database, it was agreed at the ECPGR Solanaceae Working Group meeting in September 2007 in Olomouc, Czech Republic to give CGN, The Netherlands the responsibility to develop a searchable central crop database for tomato germplasm, collected and preserved by ECPGR members and associated countries. The technical work of this version was carried out by Willem van Dooijeweert and Frank Menting at CGN. The database has been available since November 2007 and contains passport data for more than 20 000 accessions of several species. The database is being developed following the FAO/IPGRI Multicrop Passport Descriptors. An extra field for original taxonomic data has been added. The taxonomy in the searchable fields is in accordance with Mansfeld or GRIN accepted nomenclature. In future more fields will be added to incorporate characterization data.
