Effect of cross pollination of Nonpareil and Avola almond cvs. with peach pollens on some physical and biochemical characteristics of hybrid kernels

Annals of Agricultural Science Cairo 41(2): 913-929

Effect of cross pollination of Nonpareil and Avola almond cvs. with peach pollens on some physical and biochemical characteristics of hybrid kernels

Hybrid seeds of Prunus amygdalus (almond) x P. persica (peach) were evaluated. The highest value of kernel/nut percentage was achieved with Nonpareil x ER. The female parent had the greatest influence on kernel weight and size. The shape of hybrid seeds varied from narrow in Nonpareil x Sou to very broad in Avola x ER. Length and width were highly correlated with kernel weight in most crosses. High oil, protein and carbohydrate contents were obtained from Nonpareil.
