Saving Strawberry Seeds and Dehydrating

January 30, 2010 - "Saving Strawberry Seeds and Dehydrating" By Joseph Parish. When it comes to strawberries you may be planning to grow your own, in such case you might possibly consider saving the strawberry seeds from the best plants that you have encountered. These plants should naturally be disease resistant and easy to care for. If you decide to save seeds from your strawberry plants then allow the fruit to over ripen before it is picked. In short, it should be slightly squishy. Place these over ripe berries into a fine holed kitchen strainer and gently shove the pulp through the sieve in order to separate the seed from the fruit. Try not to crush the seeds. Click here

  1. Your commentary makes one fatal flaw... strawberry plants are octoploid, that is, they contain four separate sets of chromosomes in each cell. Each one has considerable genetic variation.

    If you save the seeds you'll be hard pressed to identify a plant in the progeny that is 100% (or likely even 50%) the same as the parent. This is why commercial strawberries are propagated 100% by runners and cloning.

    Diploid wild strawberries are small and tend to inherit parental characters more directly.
