Potential fruit growth of tomato after limiting assimilate supply



Potential fruit growth of tomato after limiting assimilate supply



Acta Horticulturae ( 456): 53-59



This study investigated whether the potential growth rate of tomato fruits, obtained under conditions of non-limiting assimilate supply, is affected by previous availability of assimilates. After transition from source- to sink-limited conditions it took 2- to 3-weeks before fruit growth rate was as fast as that from fruits growing under non-limiting conditions, indicating that the fruit cannot adapt its growth rate immediately to a surplus of assimilates.
