Under both natural and artificial conditions, the initiation and the process of freezing in potted mulberry trees were investigated. Measurements of the nocturnal course of temperatures in mulberry trees were also made during cold seasons in the open. The presence of ice on the leaf surface was found to prevent supercooling of leaves in autumn and spring, although detached leaves could readily be supercooled to -4°C. 'On the other hand, ice formation in winter shoots took place at -3.0 to -5.6… CONTINUE READING
