Tomato is one of the most important vegetable and fruit crops in the world, which has rich nutritional value. Soluble solids is an important index to measure the quality of tomato. It is mainly composed of soluble sugar, organic acid and other nutrients. It is important to study the changes of key enzymes and genes of sugar and starch metabolism in tomato fruit to reveal the control of soluble solid accumulation in tomato fruit. In this paper, the QTL loci related to soluble solids in tomato, the relationship between soluble solids and tomato fruit size, sugar accumulation in tomato fruit, key enzymes and transcription factors affecting sugar metabolism, and the influence of environmental factors on soluble solids were reviewed. And the future research direction and focus of tomato soluble solids were prospected.
