this application such as delaying maturation, expanding the harvest window, and slowing postharvest ripening rates have been shown in apple and tomato fruit ( Byers et al., 2005 ; Choi and Huber, 2008 ; Choi et al., 2008 ; Elfving et al., 2007

( Forshey and Elfving, 1989 ; Wünsche and Ferguson, 2005 ). Low coloration, low soluble solids, and high firmness of the fruits by the high N rate ( Table 1 ) indicated that high N supply could delay fruit maturation as has been reported for apple ( Neilsen

Abstract

The seed influences rate of growth, size, shape and maturation of avocado fruits. Seeded fruits are 8-10 times larger than seedless ones and contain more and larger cells. The growth pattern of seeded and seedless fruits is similar from June until maturation, when growth rate of seeded fruits decreases. Fruit maturation is characterized by rapid accumulation of oil in the mesocarp, preceded by shriveling of the seed coats, and the discontinuation of the seeds’ influence on fruit growth. The role of the seed in the development of avocado fruit is discussed.

Abstract

Deblossoming of ‘Summit’, a determinate cultivar of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) after the 4, 5 and 6 cluster stages significantly increased mean fruit wt and yield. Removal of late formed flowers tended to delay maturation of fruits.

Abstract

Extraction and assay of sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH) throughout fruit maturation of 3 apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) cultivars, watercore-resistant ‘Golden Delicious,’ occasionally susceptible ‘McIntosh’, and normally susceptible ‘Starkrimson,’ showed no relationship between susceptibility to watercore and extractable enzyme activity. There was, however, a relationship between increased SDH activity and onset of the climacteric as measured by ethylene and CO2 evolution, suggesting that SDH, like certain other enzymes, increases during maturation.
