Interpretive Summary: A diverse strawberry family named FVC11 was created by using elite native clones of the ancestral species of the cultivated strawberry. The impressive performance of this family led us to identify a core subset for conservation and breeding purposes. To select this core subset, the best performing individuals were identified from each group based on genome-wide genotypic data as well as phenotypic data from 16 traits. A subgroup of 10 individuals was selected that represents most of the genetic diversity in this family and will be preserved as part of the USDA-ARS National Strawberry Collection housed in Corvallis, Oregon.

Technical Abstract: A diverse strawberry family (FVC11) was created by intercrossing elite native clones of the progenitor species of F. × ananassa - F. virginiana and F. chiloensis. The impressive performance of FVC11 led us to identify a core subset within the family for conservation and breeding purposes. Cluster procedures were conducted on the phenotypic data of 16 traits and 29,251 SNP data generated using the genome wide SNP array, Affymetrix Axiom IStraw90TW. To select a core group, the best performing individuals were identified in each of the major clades shown in the phenographs derived from the genotypic and phenotypic data. A subgroup of 10 individuals was selected that represents most of the genetic diversity in FVC11.
