A descriptive model for peach fruit growth

Advances in Horticultural Science 14(1): 19-22

A descriptive model for peach fruit growth

A descriptive model for peach fruit growth is proposed. Using several qualitative considerations, mathematical expressions for a fruit diameter curve and fruit weight curve were obtained.

A virtual fruit model simulating seasonal changes in several peach (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) fruit quality traits during the final growth stage is presented. The quality traits considered are fruit size, the proportion of total fruit mass consi...

A simulation model of carbon supply and demand for vegetative and reproductive growth of peach was developed for shoots bearing fruit. The model considers three compartments: the one-year-old stem, the leafy shoots and the fruits. The model simula...

Regulated deficit irrigation strategies are common practices in areas with low water availability. Thus, water stress, which can limit fruit growth, is imposed to the trees. Fruit thinning can be used to relieve this water stress in peach. In this...
