Management and evaluation of pineapple genetic resources in Martinique

, : Management and evaluation of pineapple genetic resources in Martinique. Revista de la Facultad de Agronomia, Universidad Central de Venezuela 21(3/4): 147-155

The CIRAD-FLHOR collection has more than 450 clones and includes representatives of the 5 classical pineapple groups and all the species except Ananas monstrosus and A. fritzmuelleri. Each clone is identified with such data as area of distribution, local name and uses. After planting in Martinique, the clones are studied for morphology of the plant, flower and fruit. These data are analysed using descriptive statistical methods to present evidence of genetic variability.
