Secondary abscission and parthenocarpic fruit growth in apple and pear flowers in vitro

, : Secondary abscission and parthenocarpic fruit growth in apple and pear flowers in vitro. Acta Horticulturae (34): 299-309

Apple and pear flowers were grown in vitro to study the influence of growth substances on secondary abscission and parthenocarpic fruit growth under controlled conditions. Abscission in apple could be induced only by auxins and could be antagonized by high concentrations of cytokinins; in pear both auxins and cytokinins were inductive. Auxin-induced abscission in apple always occurred at 2-5 mm from the base of the pedicel.
