tomato and cucumber DNA libraries

Dear Netters,

Does anyone out there have a tomato
or cucumber genomic DNA library that they
would be willing to donate? Or do you
know of a source for such libraries--
commercial or otherwise? We are presently
doing work in trying to isolate a homolog
of an Arabidopsis gene. We have found
evidence in both tomato and cucumber for
the existence of the homolog using PCR,
but our primers are not specific enough
for the homologous regions to allow 
sequencing of the tomato or cucumber
DNA. We are going to next try probing
libraries to help isolate our gene of
interest. Any help would be appreciated.
