The development of micropropagated wild cherry (Prunus avium L.) was compared in the nursery and the field with cuttings and seedlings, over a total period of 6 years. Summer semi-hardwood cuttings tended to produce moderate numbers of branches in the season following propagation, whereas micropropagules and seedlings produced significantly fewer or none at all. Removal of branches from cuttings resulted in taller trees. A greater proportion of cuttings than micropropagules flowered in the… CONTINUE READING
