    Changes of antioxidant enzyme activity in the fruit of Kaohsiung No. 3 and Wen Nong 220. After harvest, fruits were measured for the antioxidant enzyme activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), ascorbate peroxidase (APX), and peroxidase (POD). Bars indicate the standard error (n = 4). Values with the same letter are not significantly different at P < 0.05.
