Peppers and eggplants are two leading vegetable crops produced and consumed worldwide. To facilitate the breeding for agronomical traits such as disease resistance and quality, diverse molecular genetic studies have been carried out. Recent achievements on pepper genome sequencing and trait-linked marker development have enabled the cloning of gene
