BACKGROUND Rapid and consistent genotyping is an important requirement for cultivar identification in many crop species. Among them grapevine cultivars have been the subject of multiple studies given the large number of synonyms and homonyms generated during many centuries of vegetative multiplication and exchange. Simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers have(More)
Seedlessness is one of the most appreciated traits in the table grape (Vitis vinifera L.). The development of new seedless varieties is expensive and time consuming, involving the generation and selection of thousands of hybrids each year. In seeded × seedless crosses, seedlessness commonly segregates 1:1, so molecular markers allowing for the early(More)
Berry texture is a determinant quality trait in the breeding of new table grape varieties. We present the first mapping quantitative trait loci (QTL) results for berry firmness in table grape. Two segregating progenies, Muscat Hamburg × Sugraone (153 offspring) and Ruby Seedless × Moscatuel (78 offspring), were evaluated for this trait during two and four(More)
