Abstract

Seedlings of Mazzard (Prunus avium L.) and Mahaleb (P. mahaleb L.) cherries were found to differ in phenolic and coumarin components in the leaf, stem and root Analysis by gas liquid chromatography indicated more o-coumaric acid in the leaves than in stem and roots. Bark of Mahaleb stem and roots contained coumarin and herniarin. The difference in phenolic composition in these cherry seedlings may play a role in scion overgrowth when sweet cherry cultivars are budded on Mahaleb stocks.
