INTERPRETING FRUIT GROWTH: PROBLEMS AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

in HortScience

Fruits of different species grow in different patterns (such as the “double sigmoid” of stone fruits and grapes or the apparent single sigmoid of apples), and each has periods of cell division followed by periods of only cell expansion. It should not be expected that one mathematical growth description would hold for all species, or even at all times of the season for one species. Perhaps hybrid growth models need to be developed, although specific questions asked about fruit growth may be satisfactorily answered with models of only parts of the fruit growth period of interest.
