The effect of growth regulators on degreening and regreening of citrus fruit






Acta Horticulturae (34): 473-478

The effect of growth regulators on degreening and regreening of citrus fruit

Endogenous growth regulators extracted from citrus fruit were related to degreening and regreening of the rind. GA increased prior to regreening, and ABA decreased after being relatively high during maturation prior to regreening of Valencia oranges. An unidentified inhibitor increased during maturation. Applied GA and BA delayed degreening and increased the amount of regreening. GA and BA also reduced the amount of carotenoid pigments.
