Scientists are genetically modifying strawberries in order to allow
them to resist freezing temperatures better. They're doing it by
artificial transfer of genes from a species of fish called the Arctic
Flounder Fish. The Arctic Flounder Fish produces an anti-freeze that
allows it to protect himself in freezing waters.
They isolated the gene that produces this anti-freeze and introduced it
to the strawberry. The result is a strawberry that looks blue and
doesn't turn to mush or degrade after being placed in the freezer. While
they're not in production, research is ongoing. Would you eat blue strawberries?
