A BioFruitNet practice abstract. Organic plum production is affected by a variety of factors: unmarketable cultivar characteristics (flavour, soluble solids content, stone adherence), reduced storage, small size and low resistance to fungal diseases and Plum Pox Virus (PPV). The experts propose a list of robust cultivars suitable for plum organic orchards establishment. Choosing the best height/size plum cultivars will give a stable yield of high-quality and good flavour fruits harvested in prolonged periods from August to November and suitable for fresh consumption.
