addition to ethylene, JAs have also been demonstrated to play an important role in the regulation of the fruit maturation and ripening process ( Kondo, 2010 ). Many studies have confirmed that exogenous JA application can promote volatile emission ( Kondo

primocane management to precisely target harvest off-season markets. The objectives of this study were to: 1) characterize flowering location, inflorescence morphology, bloom pattern, and range of fruit maturation in primocanes of ‘Prime-Jan’ and ‘Prime

determinate small-fruited tomato cultivars with concentrated fruit maturation will still allow small growers to profitably produce and market cherry and grape tomatoes. However, instead of harvesting by machine, the vines could be clipped by hand at the soil

lowbush blueberry yield include abundance of pollinating insects during flowering and moisture availability during fruit maturation ( Yarborough, 2004 ). The yield in 1997 was low because it was a second consecutive crop, which has been shown to be ≈70% of

borne on each inflorescence with a high level of variability among inflorescences. Typical of P. vera , the majority of flowers abort before fruit maturation, leaving 10–20 mature fruit per inflorescence. Flower buds. Ten dormant flower buds

little value if the viability was low, because pollen tube growth and ovule fertilization are necessary for seedless fruit maturation ( Maynard and Elmstrom, 1992 ; Rhodes et al., 1997 ; Robinson and Decker-Walters, 1997 ). Poor pollination in
