Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Shelf-life of fresh-cut lettuce was assessed in two mapping population (Salinas 88 x La Brillante, and Pavane x Parade. The most significant QTL was detected in both populations on linkage group 4. This QTL was detected in seven experiments grown in different environments. Molecular markers are being developed that will allow marker-assisted selection for the rate of decay in fresh-cut lettuce.
