Abstract

A wide range in ratio of the size of primary vs. secondary (P/S) berries was found in 17 cultivars and selections of strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) Populations from 6 crosses of parents with low, intermediate, and high P/S indicated quantitative inheritance for P/S ratios. Some seedlings exceeded the upper and lower bounds of the range of either parent.

Abstract

‘Linn’, ‘Olympus’, and ‘Totem’ strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) were defoliated on various dates in 1979 during mechanical harvest or by leaf mowing after hand harvest, and numbers of crown divisions, runners, and inflorescences as well as berry size, fruit rot, and yield were measured in 1980. The only difference attributable to defoliation dates was berry size in ‘Olympus’ and ‘Totem’. Defoliation by mechanical harvest did not adversely affect subsequent plant growth and yield.
