Title: Evaluation of Selected Almond [Prunus dulcis (Miller) D.A. Webb] Germplasm for Several Shell and Kernel Characteristics
Authors: C. A. Ledbetter and C. B. Shonnard
Nine almond selections from a previous
breeding program were compared with 'Non
pareil' for their potential usefulness.
kernel weights, kernel percentage, percent
doubles, amount of worm damage and kernel
color were measured.
All nine selections had
significantly less worm damaged kernels than
'Nonpareil'. Variability was also present for in-shell
and kernel weights, kernel percentage and
Other production characteristics
including cross compatibility with 'Nonpareil'
are also discussed.
