Undesirable seediness in strawberry fruit of the Tufts variety has been observed under various growing conditions throughout the fruiting season. This periodic occurrence of seediness has limited the acceptance of this new variety. The seedy appearance was thought to be caused by adverse climatic conditions, heat, powdery mildew, growing methods, or chemical phytotoxicity.
