variability appears to be the key factor. It has been reported that lignin is the principal component of stone cells in pear ( Cai et al., 2010 ; Choi et al., 2007 ; Tao et al., 2009 ; Wu et al., 2013a ). Damage to fruit caused by insect pests, birds

early 1960s, Ryugo first recognized that stones are composed of lignin ( 1961 , 1963 ). His work documented the fact that peach stones are rich in lignin, the seasonal pattern of lignin accumulation, and the presence of lignin biosynthesis intermediates

., 2010 ). Nickel deficiency might influence WSFS ( Wells and Wood, 2008 ), because the shell is mostly composed of lignin, a molecule that provides rigidity to different plant structures. If Ni deficiency is present, the shell might not be hard enough to

, ethylene has been reported to have a role in wound healing ( St. Amand and Randle, 1989 ). Lignin and suberin contribute to both cell wall strength and resistance to water loss during plant growth and development ( Bernards and Lewis, 1998 ; Boudet, 2000

. Therefore, reducing fruit russeting is a top priority among producers. The suberification process is closely related to lignin and phenolic concentrations ( Bernards, 2002 ; Graça and Santos, 2007), and it has been reported that lignin, cellulose, and

and Dale, 1980 ). The formation of the thatch-mat layer is the result of a greater rate of organic matter accumulation than degradation ( Beard, 1973 ). Most microbial degradation mechanisms are restricted by the presence of lignin, a plant cell wall
