Data on hadron production by e+e--annihilation at c.m. energies between 30 GeV and 36 GeV are presented and compared with two models both based on first-order QCD but using different schemes for the fragmentation of quarks and gluons into hadrons. In one model the fragmentation proceeds along the parton momenta, in the other along the colour-anticolour axes. The data are reproduced better by fragmentation along the colour axes.
