Brent, I hope you know that there already are seedless tomato varieties.

People in Romania run away from seedless tomatoes, and for good reason (well, the reasonably educated ones at least). All early ones are stimulated to form fruit without pollination, since the conditions are too cold, and then often stimulated again during summer, cos it's too hot. These stimulants are somewhat illegal to sell in EU from what I understand because they are carcinogenic.

Forming fruits without pollination is called parthenocarpy.

We're talking about different things.
Stimulation (more or less legally) to form fruit without pollination exists at a pretty big scale in certain countries for that expensive early fruit (during summer tomato prices in eastern europe plummet to a few cents).
Why they don't use parthenocarpic varieties, not sure, my guess is that they don't get the same production or aren't early enough.

Brent posted one link in post one, and I posted one link in post two,so I'm not sure what you are referring to when you refer to the OTHER 2 videos.

In his 1st video he said there would be 2 more to show how the plants grow, and I want to see them.

I missed that since I didn't watch all of the initial video since I was thinking more of fetching some links to show that there already were seedless tomatoes.

Thanks for the clarification.

I "subscribed" after watching, so maybe I will be told when the other videos come out--(I am not very savvy about you tube!)

Ma'am, as far as I know, this is different. Can you tell me which tomato, OSU or Burpee, which will produce seedless fruit 100% of the time by cutting the flower buds in half? It could equate to a guarantee of seedless fruit every single time with only seconds of one's time. I feel like this is a pretty big deal. Don't miss the next video!

Well, you can stay tuned here. I'll post the link to them provided the moderators allow it. And, I hope they do. I chose Tomatoville on purpose. Or, you can subscribe to my YouTube which will inform you through email if you click on the small bell and then check the notification by email.

Listen, this isn't click bait. It is truth. You don't have to sub or, if anyone thinks I'm pulling their leg, they can unsub easily enough.

That is a huge practice going on today with farming, and to a huge extent, here in the USA. There are papers on it. Auxin-induced tomatoes. Yuk, yuk is what I say. So, I agree with Romanian citizens.

Well, it's Sunday, and as promised, here is video 2: https://youtu.be/i5yBlVBUnsE. What you're looking at has never been done as far as I know, is beyond anything you've seen, and has unimaginable benefits. The 3rd video, next Sunday, will go into great detail on these first 2 videos.
