Blue strawberry with fish genes

blue strawberry

Scientists are developing a anti-freeze/blue strawberry. Compared with ordinary strawberry, blue strawberry has the capacity of cold resistance, the anti-freeze/blue gene comes from the Arctic Flounder Fish, this species of fish contains a gene which can protect them from being frozen in the Arctic ice cold water, scientists extract this gene and combine it with the genes of strawberry, create such blue strawberry. This modified strawberry has inherited Arctic Flounder Fish’s freeze resistance, it will remain firm in extremely cold condition, it means you needn’t wrap it in cling film when put it in the fridge. But what’s the taste of it is still unknown.
