aqueous 1-MCP solution applied to citrus reduces ethephon-induced leaf abscission with little effect on fruit detachment force ( Pozo et al., 2004 ). The efficacy of a postharvest application of 1-MCP in water to delay ripening of a climacteric fruit has

. Tomato inflorescences typically have an abscission zone (joint) in the pedicel of each flower. Detachment of the fruit at this joint at harvest results in the calyx and stem remaining attached to the fruit, which can in turn puncture or otherwise damage

et al., 1981 ; Wang et al., 2002 ). Wounding flavedo of 2-week-old fruitlets can cause 33% of fruitlet drop, but reductions in fruit detachment force or increases in fruit drop were not observed when 8- to 12-week-old fruitlet were wounded
