Provides a comprehensive nanopore sequencing dataset with a median fragment size of 11,979 bp for the wild tomato species Solanum pennellii featuring an estimated genome size of ca 1.0 to 1.1 Gbases. Solanum pennellii is structurally highly similar to that of the reference S. pennellii LA716 genome but has a high error rate caused mostly by deletions in homopolymers. Solanum pennellii is a wild green fruited tomato species native to Peru. It exhibits beneficial traits such as abiotic stress resistances.
