The relationship between time of flower opening and its ability to become a mature fruit, in three orange varieties



The relationship between time of flower opening and its ability to become a mature fruit, in three orange varieties



Ann Agric Sci 4(2): 45-52



The relation between time of flower opening during the blooming period and its ability to grow into a mature fruit was studied in 2 successive years with 3 orange varieties, Baladi, Succari, and Valencia. It was found that flowers that opened around the middle of the blooming period had the best chance to grow into mature fruits. Early and late opening flowers, on the other hand, had a rather poor chance in this respect. The fruiting percentage was very low at the beginning of the flowering season It then increased steadily to reach its maximum during the early days of April which coincided with the middle of the season. It then decreased till blooming ended. Temperature changes during the blooming season followed the same trend.
