English abstract: A complete diallel cross 1/2P (P+1) of five tomato parents (alc, nor, rin, Nr and normal) having different fruit ASI (Accumulative storage index) of six generations were analyzed for inheritance and storability. The results indicated that the inheritance of tomato fruit storability agreed with the additive, dominant and epistatic model (m=54.459, [d]=35.188, [h]=-10.529, [i]=19.199, [j]=-21.611), and the additive component was predominant. h2(B)=52.06789%, h2(N)=50.9845%. The results suggested that crossbreeding, supplemented with heterosis, was the primary method for improving fruit storability in tomatoes and selection should be done in early and middle generations. The combining ability analysis indicated that nor and alc were found to be good parent materials in breeding for raising fruit storability and the combination 'alc x nor' and alc x normal' were best.
