Stone fruits includes almond, apricot, cherry, nectarine, peach and plum and these are grown on commercial scale in the North and North-Eastern States of India. Losses in terms of quality and quantity are reported from all over the world due the viral infections in these fruits. In the present chapter we are discussing the groups of viruses infecting these fruits and individual members of these groups with respect to their host, symptoms, transmission, genome, diagnostics and management studies. Important viruses infecting these fruits are: Apple mosaic virus (ApMV), Prunus necrotic ringspot virus (PNRSV), Prune dwarf virus (PDV), American plum line pattern virus (APLPV), Plum pox virus (PPV), Apple chlorotic leaf spot virus (ACLSV), Apricot latent virus (ApLV) and Plum bark necrosis stem pitting associated virus (PBNSPaV). Latest biotechnological approaches like virus free production of plants, CP mediated resistance and RNAi used to manage viral diseases are also described.
