Respiration rate and acidity in parthenocarpic and seeded Conference pears



Respiration rate and acidity in parthenocarpic and seeded Conference pears



Journal of Horticultural Science 50(4): 435-445



GA3-induced parthenocarpic Conference pears started to grow sooner than seeded or naturally parthenocarpic fruits, but their growth rate declined earlier. At harvest the seeded fruits were bigger than GA3-treated and naturally parthenocarpic fruit. Respiration rates in peel and pulp of GA3-treated pears and in the peel of naturally parthenocarpic fruit were higher than in the seeded fruits. Respiration rates of peel were always higher than those of pulp or core.
