Virus-tested Stone Fruit
All stone-fruit clones listed in this index were tested at NRSP5 facilities and were found to be free of known viruses and virus-like agents detectable by the following woody indicators:
- Shirofugen and Kwanzan flowering cherry
- Prunus tomentosa
- Shiro plum
- Elberta or GF305 Peach
- Tilton apricot
- Bing, Sam and Canindex cherry
Please note tests with a cRNA probe found many peach and nectarine clones to be infected with peach latent mosaic viroid (PLMVd). This viroid caused no obvious symptoms on any of the indicators listed above or on the infected peach or nectarine clones. Most varieties in the NRSP5 collection are now free of this viroid, but several are not. A release must be signed before PLMVd-infected budwood is distributed to anyone.
You may order budwood for propagation here.
