Eggplant QTL are named as in Table 1 and putative orthologous loci are named according to the references listed. Mapping accuracy is coded:

  • * locus position deduced by comparison of classical and molecular maps

  • ** locus mapped but position on high density molecular map is approximate

  • *** locus mapped relative to markers on high density map

  • **** locus cloned.

  • a Several anthocyanin QTL cosegregated with fap10.1: fai10.1, fc10.1, lla10.1, lra10.1, sa10.1, pa10.1, and ca10.1.
