This makes the Troyer subject to a virus disease known as exocartis. Like scaly-bark, scaly-bark, scaly-bark, exocartis is bud-transmitted. bud-transmitted. bud-transmitted. At present, the only way a grower can be sure trees on Troyer are free of exocartis is to buy nursery trees with nu-cellar nu-cellar nu-cellar orange tops.
