P. avium (vigorous), P. fruticosa (weak) and P. cerasus (moderately vigorous) and the hybrids P. fruticosa X P. avium (moderately vigorous) and P. cerasus X P. fruticosa (weak to moderately vigorous) all had the same range of phenolic acids in the young shoots but differed in the relative quantities. Content of chlorogenic acid showed a direct relationship and contents of ferulic acid and vanillic acid an inverse relationship with growth vigour.
