  1. Go to UniProt website
  2. Search for: taxonomy:viridiplantae
  3. Click on the Download button:
    • Check Download all
    • Select Format: FASTA
    • Check Compressed
    • Click GO.

Hi,

The accepted answer is not optimal. The entire plant database is huge and takes a long time to download via browser.

After a long time, I found the best solution:

wget ftp://ftp.uniprot.org/pub/databases/uniprot/current_release/knowledgebase/taxonomic_divisions/uniprot_trembl_plants.dat.gz

Took me 2 days search to find this link. It should be easier to find!

Cheers, Ricardo

In case others need to retrieve the plant uniprot sprot database, one can download the .dat file (uniprot_sprot_plants.dat.gz) from ftp://ftp.uniprot.org/pub/databases/uniprot/current_release/knowledgebase/taxonomic_divisions/, and then use a Python script (swissprot2fasta.py) from MakerP (https://github.com/bioxfu/MakerP) to convert .dat to .fasta
