The efficiency of an original approach to involvement of the valuable genetic pool of wild diploid potato species from Mexico is estimated. The essence of this method is in generation of dihaploids (2n = 2x = 24) of tetraploid somatic hybrids (2n = 4x = 48) followed by backcrossing with dihaploids of Solanum tuberosum. A haploid producer, S. phureja IvP35, was used to generate ten dihaploids of S. tuberosum + S. pinnatisectum, all of which crossed with fertile S. tuberosum dihaploids and developed plump viable seeds. This gives the possibility of an efficient introgression of the genes valuable for breeding from wild species to the bred plants at a diploid level, which has several advantages compared with the corresponding procedure at a tetraploid level. A part of the dihaploids produced was compatible (the pollen tubes reached the ovary) with diploid and tetraploid forms of S. pinnatisectum; however, no viable seeds were developed. The attempt to generate the dihaploids of S. tuberosum + S. bulbocastanum somatic hydrides using the haploid producer S. phureja IvP35 was unsuccessful.
