Resin ducts in the mango fruit: a defence system

Resin ducts in the mango fruit: a defence system

Journal of Experimental Botany 31(125): 1707-1718

In fruits of 18 varieties of Mangifera indica the number of ducts per 1 mm section length and the relative volume occupied by the ducts in the pericarp was greater for varieties resistant to penetration of the fruit by Ceratitis capitata than for susceptible varieties.
