Strawberry (Fragaria×ananassa Duch.):In Vitro Production of Haploids

  • K. Niemirowicz-Szczytt
Part of the Biotechnology in Agriculture and Forestry book series (AGRICULTURE, volume 12)


Strawberry (Fragaria×ananassa Duch.) is an octoploid species 2n = 56, which does not occur in natural conditions. This hybrid species developed after crosses between Fragaria chiloensis (L.) Duch. and Fragaria virginiana Duch., which was for the first time described by Duchesne in 1766 and later confirmed in numerous papers (Otterbacher and Skirvin 1978)
