US (CA): UC Davis podcast about strawberry cultivation

A new podcast on Gastropod — “Running on Fumes: Strawberry’s Dirty Secret” — addresses the cultivation of strawberries in Europe 300 years ago, to their transport to the U.S., to their major production in California.

Professor Steve Knapp, director of the Strawberry Breeding Program, in the Department of Plant Sciences at UC Davis, is one of the experts interviewed in the podcast. Knapp addresses the original production of cultivated strawberries 300 years ago from hybrid plants, why California is such an ideal climate for strawberry production (mix of Mediterranean and subtropical climates, along with the ocean cooling effect), developing day-neutral strawberries, and the current breeding methods used to develop new strawberry varieties.
