Perpetual-flowering (PF) is a highly desirable trait within cultivated strawberries (Fragaria texttimesananassa) for the commercial and home garden markets. The most widely used source of the PF trait was originally introgressed from a wild F. virginiana subsp. glauca accession collected in the Wasatch Mountains near Salt Lake City, UT in 1955. This source is conferred by a single dominant QTL, FaPFRU, and was recently identified in multiple bi-p... [more]
