Apertures in the skin of apple fruits and their closure

Erwerbsobstbau 35(6): 148-152
Apertures in the skin of apple fruits and their closure
The occurrence and nature of breaks in apple skins were monitored by visual examination of fruits after 24 h of immersion in 0.5% methylene blue solution and by scanning electron microscopy. Principal sites of skin rupture were open lenticels, stomata and surface cracks. These fissures were particularly prevalent during the vegetative period but decreased after harvest and during cold storage (3 degrees C, 96% RH) due to suberization and deposition of cutin.
