Ethylene production and acid phosphatase activity were determined during pre- and postharvest ripening of McIntosh fruits treated with SADH [daminozide] 3 weeks after blooming and/or CEPA [ethephon] and NAA 2 weeks before harvest. In control fruit...

The effect of ethylene inhibitor ReTain (15% AVG, 250 p.p.m.) on fruit abscission and quality of peach cv. Redhaven (grafted on PSA.5) was investigated. If ReTain was applied 6 days before harvest, it greatly reduced ethylene emissions, resulting...

Fruits from sprayed trees were softer and had less astingency than fruit from unsprayed trees. Harvestin...
