  • Folks, let's start talking about Strawberries by writing down what traits you are interested in focusing your breeding program on. If you are not a strawberry breeder but you love to eat strawberries, please write down what would make you go buy strawberries from the market or why you would want to grow strawberries in your backyard for example.

  • I am more interested in working on gene editing in the Kiwifruit plant using CRISPR technology. My lab is working on early flowering in Actinidia (Kiwifruit & kiwiberry).

  • Happy join the strawberry platform. I am keen to learn about straw berry agronomy, breeding and business. I have a few straw berries in my backyard, my children scout them to pick every straw berry even when they are not fully red. I have a dream- to grow straw berries for sale. Strawberry is a high value crop. I will be happy to be the first strawberry breeder in my country. I have come to love this crop. Very happy to be hear to learn, interact and grow.
