that were 20% to 70% higher ( Cameron and Hartley, 1990 ). In addition to the octoploid species, several lower-ploidy Fragaria species (2×, 4×, and 6×) have desirable characteristics such as extreme vigor ( Harbut et al., 2009 ), unique flavors

these chemicals for chromosome doubling varies depending on the plant species, concentration levels, and treatment duration. Restored fertility, increased flower and leaf sizes, and shortened internodes often accompany ploidy manipulation ( Pryor and

cytometric analysis was used to determine ploidy level as was done for C. sativa by Bagheri and Mansouri (2015) and Parsons et al. (2019) . For flow cytometric analysis, 50 mg of young leaf tissue was harvested per plant. A modified version of the
