Part of the Compendium of Plant Genomes book series (CPG)


Climate change is impacting soft fruit crops. In raspberry, uneven bud break, greater variability in time to fruit ripening and crumbly fruit are already in evidence. Understanding the developmental process and how the environment impacts will be crucial in sustaining the industry in this changing climate against a background of biotic stresses. This chapter reviews regulation of processes leading to flowering time and fertilisation, developing fruit, ripening, colour, flavour and size. Recent developments of genomic and transcriptome tools which will have a significant role in breeding of the next generation of raspberry fruit are considered.
