Effect of yield on sweet orange fruit size

Horticultura Mexicana 1(1): 85-92
Effect of yield on sweet orange fruit size
The influence of fruit number on fruit size and weight was studied in 2 Navelina orchards for 3 years. At any fruiting density, average fruit weight was 25-80 g higher in the high-yielding orchard than in the low-yielding orchard. Fruit weight varied markedly from year to year. Both orchards produced larger fruits in 1981 than in 1980, and fruit size was intermediate in 1982. There was generally a negative correlation between fruit weight and number of fruits on the tree.
