Breeding and disease problems in some tropical and subtropical fruits with emphasis on papaya


, : Breeding and disease problems in some tropical and subtropical fruits with emphasis on papaya. Acta Horticulturae: 125-133

Banana varieties have been developed with resistance to Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense but some desirable fruit and bunch characteristics of Gros Michel have been lost in the course of breeding. Mango selections from open-pollinated progenies of monoembryonic forms have provided many desirable varieties. Pineapple breeding projects have contributed significantly to knowledge of cytology and genetics but have not given any new varieties.
