America Corp., Aurora, IL). In the 2007–2008 cropping year, fruit detachment force (FDF, kg-force) was measured 6 d after spray treatments in both mature and developing fruit with a digital force gauge (Force Five; Wagner Instruments, Greenwich, CT). For

the force was recorded at 2.5 mm deformation on opposite sides of the equatorial region of each fruit. Maximum force generated during probe travel was used for firmness values. Avocados were considered full-ripe when whole fruit firmness decreased to

accelerate abscission by decreasing the detachment force of mature citrus fruit have been identified ( Burns et al., 2003 ; Hartmond et al., 2000a , 2000b ; Kender et al., 1998 ; Yuan et al., 2002 ). Among these compounds, 5-chloro-3-methyl-4-nitro-1 H

equipment ( Rejano et al., 2008 ). Low fruit removal efficiency is usually related to fruit retention force, something that also depends on cultivar. This force is greater in green than in fully ripe fruits and therefore more energy is required to detach the
