Ethylene plays a major role in the ripening of climacteric fruit such as melons (Cucumis melo) of the cantaloupensis group. However, the importance of other modes of regulation is emerging and demonstrates the interplay between ethylene-dependent and ethylene-independent events during ripening, including at the molecular level.
