Infestation of carambolas by laboratory reared caribbean fruit flies diptera tephritidae effects of fruit ripeness and cultivar



Infestation of carambolas by laboratory reared caribbean fruit flies diptera tephritidae effects of fruit ripeness and cultivar



Journal of Economic Entomology 80(2): 407-410



Three cultivars of Averrhoa carambola (L.) fruits at four stages of ripeness were infested with laboratory-reared Anastrepha suspensa (Loew). Overall, 'Golden Star' fruit was significantly less suceptible than 'Arkin' or 'Fwang Tung' by the following measures of infestation numbers of eggs laid in fruit, number of pupae developing from fruit, and average weight of pupae. However, cultivar-specific effects of fruit ripeness were detected, with infestation levels increasing with ripeness in some cultivars and declining in others.
