Influence of time of flower and fruit thinning on the firmness of 'Cox's Orange Pippin' apples at harvest and after storage



Influence of time of flower and fruit thinning on the firmness of 'Cox's Orange Pippin' apples at harvest and after storage



Journal of Horticultural Science 69(2): 197-203



Cox's Orange Pippin apple trees were hand-thinned to one flower or fruit per cluster at 5-day intervals from 5 to 40 days after full bloom (FB). The greatest increase in harvest fruit firmness was achieved by thinning during the period from 5 to 15 days after FB with no further increase when thinned at 25 days after FB. Further delaying thinning again led to some increased firmness.
