In this research, an in vitro micropropagation protocol was developed for a domestic tree tomato, from Costa Rica, and of the orange phenotype; which has considerable potential for its use in agroindustry and in agricultural diversification. Two different in vitro disinfection treatments were evaluated, with variations of 2,5...
