We report the detection of cherry virus A (CVA) in a Prunus mume sample using Illumina HiSeq 2500 paired-end RNA sequencing. CVA isolate OC shared highest sequence identity with CVA isolate J, which was recently identified in P. armeniaca in Japan. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of CVA infecting P. mume in Korea and the first complete genome sequence of CVA isolated from P. mume in the world.
