Heritability estimates for fruit firmness of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) based on the regression of mean offspring performance on average parent performance varied from 0.49 to 0.67 over a 4 year period. Analysis of variance of progeny data showed that general combining ability variance (additive) was much greater than specific combining ability variance. Of 29 parent clones studied ‘Holiday’, ‘Linn’, ‘WSU 1522’ and ‘MD-US 3184’ had the firmest fruit and on the basis of progeny analysis had the highest general combining ability parental values. Low parental values were obtained for ‘Tamella’, ‘Benton’, ‘Puget Beauty’, ‘WSU 1019’, ‘OR-US 3291’ and ‘OR-US 3522’.
