, transport of photoassimilates from source tissues via the phloem to sink tissues, and stress tolerance ( Doman and Geiger, 1979 ; Marschner, 1995 ; Pettigrew, 2008 ; Usherwood, 1985 ). Deficiencies of K are associated with a number of economically

(2005) posit that the lack of a direct causal relationship between the source-to-sink ratio and accumulation of TSS makes this difficult to assess and forecast. Indeed, we did not find a difference on basic fruit chemistry at harvest in the 2 years and
