Comparison inside the same things as No.12. Thickening of the peel is induced by the infection of EAPV-AO type strain. Its capacity of canopy is extremely small, and there are little seeds and fresh. Also in the infection by EAPV-IB type strain, the peel directly under the uneven surface is thick a little. S
