4. Apples were taken from trees, ringed and unringed, of a late var., Newton Wonder, and from trees of an earlier var., Allington Pippin, some under grass, some in cultivation, and some with different thinning practices. Changes in catalase activity of fruit from Newton Wonder trees suggested that those from ringed trees matured more slowly after being picked than those from unringed trees. Results with Allington Pippin were not uniform enough to suggest differences in rate of maturity caused by differences in treatment of trees. Results with oxidase activity require further study.[long dash]5. From trees ringed and unringed, in grass and in cultivation, and trees with fruit thinned and not thinned, fruit was picked at 3 stages of ripening and stored at 2[degree]-12[degree]C. Pressure tests suggested that fruit from ringed trees, trees under grass, and trees on which the fruit had been thinned, ripened more slowly in storage than fruit from unringed, from cultivated, and from unthinned trees. Records of loss of wt. by fruit seemed to support the same conclusion and suggested that loss of wt. is a function of metabolism.[long dash]6. With the var. Allington Pippin fruit was used from trees grown under grass and in clean cultivation and from cultivated trees on which the fruit was thinned and on which it was not thinned. With the var. Newton Wonder fruit was used from normal trees and trees ringed in the spring. N content decreased during storage, the rate being greater early in the storage period and in fruits of later pickings of Allington Pippin but in fruits of the earlier pickings of Newton Wonder. Acid hydrolysable material decreased markedly during storage, but in some cases it increased near the end of storage life. The curve for loss of sucrose was exponential in most samples. There was some evidence that loss of sucrose would cease when there was a residual amt. present, this amt. being larger for later pickings. The ratio, reducing sugars/sucrose, increased during storage, increase being less in the later pickings of Allington Pippin.
