( Ayala and Lang, 2015 ; Basile et al., 2002 ). Farrar (1996) and Minchin et al. (1997) suggested that the distribution of assimilates is controlled by the entire source–sink pathway in the plant system and is not a property of sinks alone. By

Retail florists' performance ratings of services provided by wholesale growers, wholesale florists, and grower-shippers/brokers were factor-analyzed to yield a hierarchical classification of customer service in floral distribution. Nine customer service factors were identified and three major independent classes of customer service were defined, including 1) physical distribution, 2) marketing, and 3) product quality services. Florists rated the performance of suppliers' physical distribution services higher than marketing and product quality services. Florists' perception of physical distribution and product quality services did not vary across type of supplier, but for marketing services, florists rated wholesale growers higher in performance than wholesale florists. The hierarchical classification of customer service and service performance profiles provide the floral industry with relevant market information for the successful development and effective implementation of customer service programs.

Determination of fruit size and weight is important in horticulture to estimate yield and the proportion of fruit in each grade ( Zhang and Robson, 2002 ). Typically, the distribution of apple fruit weight fits a normal distribution ( Webb et al

Early-season estimates of fruit size distributions would be beneficial for apple growers and packers to develop intelligent marketing plans for the upcoming harvest season. Although apple fruit weight data usually fit a normal distribution ( Clarke
