“tracebacks” have not been determined ( Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2005 ). In packinghouses, after being graded and packed, mature green tomatoes are typically treated with the gaseous plant growth regulator ethylene (C 2 H 4 ) for a number of

( Watada and Morris, 1967 ). Like with other nonclimacteric fruits and fruit–vegetables, green beans produce very low quantities of ethylene postharvest ( Wills and Kim, 1996 ). For many nonclimacteric fruits, the impact of ethylene is generally believed to

hormone ethylene ( Muller et al., 1998 ; Serek and Reid, 2000 ; Wu et al., 1991a ). Ethylene is the primary promoter of floral organ abscission and senescence in a wide range of flowering plants ( van Doorn, 2001 ; Woltering and van Doorn, 1988 ). This

. In fact, Kays (1985) mentioned that although gibberellic acid, auxin, ethylene, cytokinin, and abscisic acid have been detected in sweetpotatoes, their specific roles have not been elucidated. Recently, Mortley et al. (2008) reported that 12 stem

Ethylene is associated with various responses that plants show in germination, ripening, wounding, and environmental stress ( Abeles et al., 1992 ). The synthetic pathway and signal transduction of ethylene have been investigated, and

, the Phalaenopsis flower is susceptible to C 2 H 4 stress ( Hew and Yong, 2004 ). Exposure of Phalaenopsis Snow Mist ‘Large Sepal’ flowers to 0.09 μL·L −1 ethylene for 66 h resulted in wilting ( Lee and Lin, 1992 ). Ethylene can come from many
