The development and performance of a healthy peach clone, obtained by thermotherapy, after eight years' observation in the orchard

Acta Horticulturae (44): 69-79

The development and performance of a healthy peach clone, obtained by thermotherapy, after eight years' observation in the orchard

Compared with ILAR-virus-infected trees of the same clone the healthy trees grew better, produced higher yields of earlier-ripening fruit, and differed in fruit quality. Natural recontamination of healthy trees by pollen from diseased trees was low in the first 5 years but had reached 80% after 8 years. Recontamination had no important effect on yield or growth.
