Fruit from Rubus species are highly valued for their flavor and nutritive qualities and several studies have been conducted to identify and quantify the major anthocyanin compounds in them. In this study, ultra high and high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC and HPLC) were used to identify and quantify anthocyanins in an interspecific Rubus segregating population. Six anthocyanins were detected in the progeny over three years (2009-2011) and their proportions reflect the contributions of their parents. Anthocyanin composition is consistent among years and between analytical methods, however, compound concentration varies widely within the population and among years.
