Calcium levels of 'Golden Delicious' apples as influenced by calcium sprays, 2,3,5-triiodobenzoic acid, and other plant growth regulator sprays



Calcium levels of 'Golden Delicious' apples as influenced by calcium sprays, 2,3,5-triiodobenzoic acid, and other plant growth regulator sprays



Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science 101(2): 120-122



When the Ca concentration of 'Golden Delicious' apple fruit was depressed by 2,3,5-triiodobenzoic acid (TIBA), 3 sprays of Ca(NO3)2 increased fruit Ca concentration and visibly reduced fruit pitting and internal breakdown. TIBA application at intervals from full bloom stopped Ca accumulation in the skin, but not in the flesh. Consequently, it appears that Ca moves into the flesh for a longer period after bloom, but at a slower rate than it does into the skin.
