Some relationships of ethylene to the respiratory patterns of honey dew melons

Some relationships of ethylene to the respiratory patterns of honey dew melons

Plant Physiol. 39: Suppl, ix

Respiration and ethylene production were measured in melons harvested at various intervals (7-54 days) after anthesis. A pre-climacteric increase in ethylene production was observed, similar to that occurring in individual mature fruits held through their ripening period. To determine whether endogenous ethylene (2-3 p.p.m.) was sufficient to stimulate a rise in respiration, ethylene was supplied in a range from 0.1 to 10 p.p.m.
