Inheritance of nut and kernel traits in almond (Prunus amygdalus Batsch)

  title={Inheritance of nut and kernel traits in almond (Prunus amygdalus Batsch)},
  author={P. Spiegel-Roy and J. Kochba},
An almond breeding program was initiated in 1966 to develop improved cultivars for arid conditions with irrigation. Nut and kernel traits were evaluated for almond parents and progenies. Highly significant parent/progeny correlation coefficients (0.7–0.9) were found for shell hardness, percentage of kernel, in-shell (nut) and kernel weight, kernel length and width, as well as kernel color and outer shell retention. Double kernels and kernel thickness had low parent/progeny correlation… CONTINUE READING
