Planting density, above-ground dry-matter partitioning and fruit quality in greenhouse-grown 'Flordaprince' peach (Prunus persica L. Batsch) trees trained to free-standing Tatura



Planting density, above-ground dry-matter partitioning and fruit quality in greenhouse-grown 'Flordaprince' peach (Prunus persica L. Batsch) trees trained to free-standing Tatura



Journal of Horticultural Science and Biotechnology 74(5): 547-552



The effect of planting density on yield, fruit quality and above-ground dry-matter partitioning into vegetative and reproductive organs of 6-year-old peach trees was investigated in Sicily on the very early-ripening Flordaprince in a greenhouse. Increasing the number of trees per hectare from 1500 to 5000 significantly reduced total above-ground dry matter, trunk cross-sectional area and total leaf area.
