Abstract Segregation of postharvest quality characters was studied in lily and tulip. A large variation in longevity of both lily and tulip flowers was found within populations tested at individual plant level. Other postharvest quality characters like number of flowers per stem, male sterility (lily) and stem elongation (tulip) also varied within the populations tested. Due to the high correlations between the offspring and their corresponding parental genotypes for several characters, breeding for a considerable improvement of postharvest quality in future cultivars seems promising.
