Effect of 2,4,5-TP treatment and harvest time on the keeping quality of Starking apples


, : Effect of 2,4,5-TP treatment and harvest time on the keeping quality of Starking apples. Acta Horticulturae (80): 367-372

When a pre-harvest spray of 2,4,5-TP (fenoprop rate unstated) was applied on 11 September to trees of Starking apple, it eliminated pre-harvest drop and increased the red skin colour, but flesh firmness and soluble solids were not affected. Fruit was harvested 6, 12, 16, 19 or 22 days after spraying and stored at 0 deg C either immediately or after holding for a few days at room temperature.

In a 2-year study, apples harvested early, i.e. less than 140 days after full bloom, were more affected by scald than those harvested 140 or 150 days after full bloom. Fruit stored in boxes with polyethylene liners developed more scald than fruit...
