Activities of cell wall-degrading enzymes and amounts of pectins and hemicelluloses were measured in bush butter fruits (harvested from Gabon, France, in April 2002) at seven stages of ripeness, from unripe to soft fruits. Enzyme assays showed that only polygalacturonase (PG) and pectinmethylesterase (PME) were present in high amounts. The PME activity remained almost constant throughout ripening while that of PG drastically increased.
