Breeding day-neutral strawberry cultivars for organic production in the Pacific Northwest

This award continues OFRF support for a breeding effort to develop strawberry varieties that produce fruit over a 4-5 month period in the Pacific Northwest. In contrast, June-bearing strawberries only produce fruit for about one month. Increasing the availability of local, organic, high-quality strawberries from late spring to mid-fall will increase demand, overall consumption, and value of this crop.


A final project report will be posted upon completion.
