The consumption and nutritional value of horticulture crops are affected by quality attributes such as the accumulation of nutrients and taste compounds, shape, and texture. Efforts have been conducted for many years to increase the quality of horticulture crops. The recent development of gene editing technology, which has potential uses in horticulture crops, will enables a technique for reaching this goal quickly and efficiently. We present a summary for research programs targeted at increasing quality of horticulture crops by genome editing. We go over the various genome editing technologies that have been used, as well as the traits that have been targeted. Moreover, we highlight the limitations of genome editing technology and its future prospects to increase horticulture quality of crops in both research and plant breeding. In conclusion, genome editing technology is proving to be a potent tool for increasing horticulture crop productivity quickly and efficiently, we believe that testing the genome editing in horticultural crops will provide new germ plasms to better quality in future.
