Most fruit crops grown in northern climates are threatened by frost. Freeze damage represents largest weather related economic loss when compared with all other weather hazards ( Snyder, 2000 ). The importance of frost protection is economically

generally thought to be the gentlest means of heat treatment with regard to its effect on fruit quality ( McGuire, 1991 ). Favorable results were reported regarding the effect of HTFA on citrus quality ( McGuire, 1991 ; Miller and McDonald, 1997 ; Sharp

application of GABA has been found to enhance plant tolerance to abiotic stresses, such as chilling tolerance in peach fruit [ Amygdalus persica ( Shang et al., 2011 )], heat tolerance in rice seedlings [ Oryza sativa ( Nayyar et al., 2014 )], and drought
