Lycopersicon is a genus which included tomatoes and some species of nightshades. First removed from the genus Solanum by Philip Miller in 1754, its removal leaves the latter genus paraphyletic, so modern botanists usually accept the names in Solanum. The name Lycopersicon is still used by gardeners, farmers, and seed companies.
