Effect of flower thinning on strawberry fruit weight and its relationship to achene number


, : Effect of flower thinning on strawberry fruit weight and its relationship to achene number. Acta Horticulturae ( 348): 351-356

Plants of 6 cultivars were reduced to one truss which was then subjected to the following treatments: (1) control, (2) primary bud removed, (3) secondary buds removed and (4) primary and secondary buds removed. The removal of primary or secondary flowers increased the average fruit weight/plant for all cultivars. However, the removal of both primary and secondary flowers did not increase average fruit weight/plant.

Field-grown genotypes (Fragaria .times. ananassa Duchesne) were studied in two seasons to determine the relationship of primary berry fresh weight to the total number of achenes per berry and the number of achenes/cm2 of receptable tissue. Within...

Measurements were made of total achene numbers, berry fresh weight and the number of achenes per sq.cm. on ripe berries of the cultivara Redgauntlet and Cambridge Vigour grown in sand culture in a cold glasshouse. Berry size was shown to depend on...

Mori, Toshiki, 1998: Effect of temperature during flower bud formation on achene number and fresh weight of strawberries. Fresh weight of strawberry fruit is known to be greater when plants are grown under relatively cool temperature because the enlargement of receptacle is partly influenced by temperature. However, fruit weight also depends on the number of achenes...

Fruit drop occurred in two peaks, the first [June] being greater than the second [July]. The number of new shoots a...
