Title: Evaluation of Vineyard Peach as a Peach Rootstock
Authors: P.D. Misic, V.Z. Pavlovic, R.R. Todorovic, and M.A. Mirkovic
The vineyard peach population of Serbia,
Yugoslavia is being sampled and trees selected
for propagation and testing.
Results thus far
indicate that there is a high degree of genetic
diversity in this population of peaches, some
with tolerance to cold and disease stress.
ferences have been found in tree vigor, fruit
quality, fruit size, yield, seed germination, and
vigor of the seedlings.
Twelve of 44 selections
have been selected for further testing.
selections including MG/62/87 and GR/65/87
are particularly desirable in regards to regular
and abundant cropping of the mother trees as
well as a high percentage of seed germination
and seedling vigor.
