Effect of six rootstocks on Forelle pear tree growth, production, fruit quality and leaf mineral content



Effect of six rootstocks on Forelle pear tree growth, production, fruit quality and leaf mineral content



Acta Horticulturae: 2, 97-103



Commercially produced European pear cultivars in South Africa are grown predominantly on the common pear (<i>Pyrus communis</i>) and less on quince (<i>Cydonia oblonga</i>) rootstocks, possibly because of the marginal soil conditions and limited water supply during the growing season in the traditional fruit growing regions of the Western Cape Province.
