Time to DNA-test strawberries
Anyone know if there exist cheap machines for counting chromosomes and analyze strawberry dna? Or some students who have time to do a few dusin tests?
The reason I ask is that now that the strawberry season starts here in Norway people are trying to lure us with important berries, yet selling them as “Norwegian strawberries”.
Sweden also have this problem but they’ve hired some experts to find the swindlers but Norway does not have any plans fighting it.
Just curious. I want to find out where the strawberries came from, and wondered if it would be possible to have dna-database for Norwegian strawberry-producers.
