). In the southeast United States, carolina laurel cherry flowers from February to April and the fruit ripens in the fall/winter. In northern Florida, the fruit is a primary food source for the american robin ( Turdus migratorius ) and the cedar waxwing

). The pH of NMF ‘Gulfking’ increased as the fruit ripened; however, the pH of MF ‘Flordaprince’ did not change in either year ( Tables 1 and 2 ). The pH of MF ‘Flordaprince’ at more advanced maturity could have been maintained by a higher level of TA

), and these fruit did not develop anthracnose even though they may be latently infected with C. musae . This suggests that chitinase could play a role in disease resistance of green bananas. As the fruit ripened and senesced [from 6 to 12 d ( Fig. 5B

Commercial, ecological, and agrotechnical considerations have recently renewed interest in the use of physical rather than chemical means to maintain postharvest quality of horticultural crops. This review discusses prestorage heat treatments that protect against physiological disorders, enhance natural resistance to pathogen infection, reversibly inhibit fruit ripening, and permit flexibility in storage temperatures.
