dc.description.abstract At the 6th International Symposium on Kiwifruit in 2006 we reported the presence of Apple stem grooving virus, Ribgrass mosaic virus (Tobamovirus) and a 700-750 nm flexuous virus in Actinidia accessions from China. The flexuous virus was subsequently sequenced and shown to be closely related to Citrus leaf blotch virus (Flexiviridae). Although to date no obvious virus problems have been reported in commercial crops further examination of kiwifruit germplasm has detected additional viruses, both spherical and filamentous, from a range of virus families and genera. These include Alfalfa mosaic virus, Cucumber mosaic virus, Cucumber necrosis virus, a Potexvirus and two novel Vitiviruses. The biological properties of the viruses from kiwifruit and their phylogenetic relationships with similar viruses from other hosts will be described, and the possible implications for the kiwifruit industry discussed. en
