Fasciation studies on Smooth Cayenne pineapple, Ananas comosus L. (Merr)

, : Fasciation studies on Smooth Cayenne pineapple, Ananas comosus L. (Merr). Acta Horticulturae (53): 391-395

A greater percentage of fasciated fruits of Smooth Cayenne pineapples was produced by control plants than by calcium-carbide-treated plants. Caging of plants did not have any significant effect of fasciation, demonstrating that insects do not play any appreciable role.
