Our contribution to this proposal is in phenotyping powdery mildew resistance and fruit quality traits in 4 breeding populations to develop markers linked with resistance and fruit quality loci.
(1) Phenotype the parents and progeny of four powdery mildew resistant families (maintained in Parlier field) for resistance segregation. (2) Phenotype parents and progeny of the same four powdery mildew resistant families for segregation of fruit traits.
