Peach latent mosaic viroid (PLMVd) is known to naturally infect peach, Prunus persica, in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America (Hadidi et al., 1997; Pelchat et al., 2000; Feikh Hassan et al., 2007). It has also been detected occasionally in naturally infected stone fruits other than peach as well as in pome fruits. Until 1997 peach was considered the only natural host of PLMVd. PLMVd in infected peach is presented in the previous chapter. This chapter deals specifically with natural temperate hosts of PLMVd other than peach.
