Increasing awareness about healthy eating drives health-conscious consumers to eat peaches ( Prunus persica ) because this fruit is a good source of antioxidants, including vitamin C ( Hashem et al., 2019 ; Noratto et al., 2014 ). The United States

It is well established that peach ( Prunus persica L. Batsch) requires some form of thinning early in the growing season to produce a crop of marketable size fruit ( Byers et al., 2003 ; Havis, 1962 ; Tukey and Einset, 1938 ). Early studies by

Rusty spot is an important disease of peach ( Prunus persica L. Batsch) that occurs in many fruit-growing regions of the world ( Dolovac et al., 2009 ; Grove, 1995b ; Jankovics et al., 2011 ). Although the disease was first described in 1941

Detection of Xylella fastidiosa Wells et al. by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay indicated that plums (Prunus hybrids) had higher absorbance values than peaches [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch]. The slip-budded trees had lower readings than those that were chip budded; however, the scion × method interaction was significant. Further comparison of slip vs. chip budding indicated that the lower absorbance value of slip budding occurred in plums only; there was no difference between budding methods in peach.

Abstract

The freezing of water within the woody tissues of apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) and peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch] was characterized and the relationship to freezing injury established. Bark and xylem tissues exhibited contrasting freezing patterns and mechanisms of freezing resistance. Water in xylem parenchyma cells deep-supercooled. Tissue injury appeared to result from the freezing of this supercooled water. In contrast, water within bark tissues underwent equilibrium freezing. Bark injury resulted from the stresses which accompany extracellular ice formation and cellular dehydration.

Abstract

Shoots of apple (Malus domestica Borkh.), cherry (Prunus avium L.), peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch] and pear [Pyrus communis × Pyrus pyrifolia (Burm.) Nakai] were collected and used in these studies. In all instances, chilling beyond that required for 50% bud break within a 2-week period (prolonged chilling) resulted in a decrease in the growing degree hours required for bud break. In many cases, over 90% of the variation in each study could be attributed to the added chilling.
