Abstract Somatic hybridization between Solanum commersonii and S. tuberosum resulted in the production of male-sterile hybrid plants, except for one fully male-fertile hybrid. The male-sterile hybrids exhibited a“pollen-less” phenotype, with rare pollen grains which were abnormal in shape and exine sculpture. Microsporogenesis and tapetal development were investigated both in male-sterile and male-fertile somatic hybrids to assess the cytological events that were involved in male sterility.
