'Pseudomonas tomato' is a Gram-negative plant pathogenic bacterium that infects a variety of plants. It was once considered a pathovar of Pseudomonas syringae, but following DNA-relatedness studies, it was recognized as a separate species and several other former P. syringae pathovars were incorporated into it.[1] Since no official name has yet been given, it is referred to by the epithet 'Pseudomonas tomato' .[2]
