My experience with
older arilbreds and virus markings is that virus markings are both genetic and
weather dependent. Some arilbreds are normally heavily virus marked, others do
not have virus markings regardless of weather conditions or adjacent cultivars
which are heavily virus marked. Some arilbreds will have severe virus
marking one year and then none the next. My model is that cooler and/or wetter
weather appears to be more conducive to virus markings. Most of the more
experienced arilirisarians who helped me in my beginning adventures with
arilbreds were of the opinion that minor virus marking was a fault but not
necessarily a sufficient condition for discarding a cultivar or a seedling.
Heavy virus marking was a sufficient condition for discarding.
