Fruit tree is certified VIRUS FREE

What does it mean when a fruit tree is certified VIRUS FREE?

It means that the fruit tree has passed through diverse tests to verify that it does not have any disease and all these tests have showed negative results to viroses. These analyses are performed by the Vegetable Health service of each Autonomous Community in Spain, by periodic visits to the production and sample taking. A certified plant is the best guarantee of its state of health. Every certified fruit tree has on its trunk a blue label indicating its rootstock and variety names, the name of the producer and its phytosanitary registry number.
