The interest of fruit breeders in haploids and doubled haploids (DH), lies in the possibility of shortening the time needed to produce homozygous lines compared to conventional breeding. Haplo-diploidization through gametic embryogenesis allows single-step development of complete homozygous lines from heterozygous parents. In a conventional breeding programme, a pure line is developed after several generations of selfing. With fruit crops, characterized by a long reproductive cycle, a high degree of heterozygosity, large size, and, sometimes, self-incompatibility, there is no way to obtain haploidization through conventional methods. This paper reviews the current status of research on doubled haploid production in the main fruit crops: Citrus, Malus domestica, Pyrus communis, Pyrus pyrifolia, Prunus persica, Prunus avium, Prunus domestica, Prunus armeniaca, Vitis vinifera, Actinidia deliciosa, Olea europaea, Morus alba, Actinidia deliziosa, [Musa balbisiana (BB)], Carica papaya, Annona squamosa, Feijoa sellowiana, Opuntia ficus-indica, Eriobotrya japonica. © Springer 2006.
