Thus, much breeding has been done to extend the harvest season both earlier and later when fruit supplies are lower. A good example would be the extension of the peach season from 1–2 months to 6–8 months through the breeding for shorter and longer fruit development periods. In addition to this, the shift of adaptation of cultivars to earlier and later blooming areas has contributed to these extended fruit marketing seasons. The traditional breeding approach is the foundation of our success. Nevertheless, the integration of the new genetic and molecular tools into the breeding programs makes a major impact. Whitaker, and Mark Herrington Part III 305 Tree Fruits 10 Apple ....................................................................................................... Although there has been success, much work needs to be done especially in the improvement of fruit quality at the extremes of the harvest season. Another approach to reduce the availability is to offer something unique. (2006) Segregation of peach and nectarine (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) cultivars according to their organoleptic characteristics. The crops reviewed have domestication history of millennium to decades and breeding activity ranging from thousands of generations to just a few generations.

This has spurred the dramatic increase of research into the development of sustainable fruit production systems.

The globalization of the fruit industry is resulting in increased activity in developing cultivars of temperate fruits adapted to subtropical and tropical environments.
