Breeding of fruit crops is a challenging process that must consider the need to preserve the characteristics of elite cultivars and the urgent need to obtain new cultivars with high resilience and high productivity. Changes in climate and the progressive limits on the use of agrochemicals may require the development of new genetic stocks in relatively short periods of time. Classical and innovative genetic engineering approaches may help achieve these goals. The second volume of this Research Topics aimed to present an update on the genetic tools available for the breeding of fruits crops for new traits. The articles of this Research Topic represent well the opportunities offered by genetic engineering to future fruit crop breeding.
