Is it possible, using modern knowledge of biochemistry and synthetic biology, to grow a tomato without growing the rest of the tomato plant?

As an academic exercise, with full knowledge of the fact that it would likely be significantly more economical to just grow the tomato plant, could the progenitor cells leading to the formation of the tomato be grown in vitro? How would this be done?
