Ethylene evolution and abscisic acid content in ethephon-treated peach fruit (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch)

Acta Horticulturae (80): 301-308

Ethylene evolution and abscisic acid content in ethephon-treated peach fruit (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch)

Trees of the peach Andross sprayed with 300 p.p.m. ethephon 31 days after full bloom showed a check to fruit growth within 24 h. Large amounts of ethylene were produced within the fruit and lesser amounts at the surface of treated leaves and fruit.

In both cultivars, ethylene production by fruits after harvest was great...
