Intensively bred fruit crops, including tomatoes and strawberries, are widely viewed as lacking flavour. The lack of breeder focus on the consumer is largely due to the genetic complexity of the flavour phenotype as well as a lack of a simple assay that can define consumer preferences. Rapid advances in genomics have opened up new opportunities to understand the chemistry and genetics of flavour. Here, we describe the underlying causes for the loss of flavour in fruits over time and delineate a… Expand
