Subject: First record of Cherry Virus A in the United Kingdom
Date posted: April 01, 2002
Source: ProMED
Cherry Virus A (CVA), a graft-transmissable capillovirus widespread in Canada (initially detected in British Columbia) and Germany, has been found in leaf and bark material taken from sweet cherry trees in the United Kingdom. The main hosts of this disease are plants in the genus Prunus, such as P. avium (sweet cherry), P. serrulata 'Kwanzan' (flowering cherry), and P. armeniaca (apricot). Though CVA is often associated with little cherry disease, it is also found in uninfected trees and does not appear to cause any disease-like symptoms on its own. However, there is no data available on the direct impact of CVA on fruit yield and/or quality in cherry orchards.
