Growth, yield, and fruit quality of virus-infected and virus-free Golden Delicious apple trees






Acta Horticulturae (44): 209-212

Growth, yield, and fruit quality of virus-infected and virus-free Golden Delicious apple trees

Several sources of Golden Delicious were compared with respect to pomological properties. Some of these sources were free from viruses, others were infected with latent apple viruses and some with rubbery wood. The virus-free sources showed the strongest growth in the first years, but this resulted in the production of a larger number of laterals. The first crop was produced by all sources in the second year after planting, the largest yield occurring in the virus-free group.
