Abstract: Apple scar skin viroid (ASSVd) is one of the most destructive viroids of pome fruit. We report 12 new sequence variants of ASSVd from apple and pear trees in north-eastern Iran. The Iranian variants ranged in size from 329 to 334 nucleotides. They formed a cluster distinct from other reported ASSVd isolates, and showed sequence variations in specific regions of the viroid RNA. This is the first report of the identification and molecular characterization of ASSVd in Iran.
