Vegetative and reproductive apical dominance in pistachio


Hortscience 20(6): 1092-1093
Vegetative and reproductive apical dominance in pistachio
Pronounced vegetative apical dominance in pistachio was exhibited by sparse lateral branching and by response to conventional pruning. This dominance necessitates a pruning procedure different from other deciduous fruit and nut species. Marked apical dominance also occurred both in the patterns of fruit set in the inflorescence as a whole and in the individual branches composing it. The percentage of fruit set was highest in the apical portion of the inflorescence and generally decreased to the proximal portion. Similarly, although only 8% of the flowers on the branches of the inflorecence occupied a terminal position, 60% of the total fruit produced were terminal.
