Hop stunt viroid (HSVd)

This viroid is widely distributed and has a large host range, including hop, citrus, plum and grapevine. It is common on fruit trees and grapevines, but infections are often latent. On hop plants it causes leaf curling, small cones and stunting. It can be transmitted mechanically, during grafting and through seeds. The viorid has 294 to 303 nucteotides.

Fore a review of this viroid see Marquez-Molins et al. (2021).
