Abstract
The growth of P. mume clones (clones 05, 10 and 15), selected from plants grown in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and peach cv. Okinawa propagated from herbaceous cuttings was evaluated. The rooted cuttings were transplanted in the nursery and evaluated for stem diameter and length for up to 145 days. The clones exhibited continuous growth in terms of stem length, whereas growth in Okinawa stabilized at 100 days after transplanting (DAT). No significant variation was observed among the clones with regard to stem diameter at 100 DAT and stem length at 115 DAT. Okinawa had a greater stem diameter than the clones.
