Solanum pimpinellifolium, a wild relative of cultivated tomato, offers a wealth of breeding potential for several desirable traits such as tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses. Here, we report the genome and annotation of S. pimpinellifolium ‘LA0480’. The ‘LA0480’ genome size (811 Mb) and the number of annotated genes (25,970) are within the range observed for other sequenced tomato species.
