SummaryIn the cool, mesic, subtropical Natal midlands, where delayed harvesting of ‘Hass’ avocado fruit was practised, fruit lipid levels on a dry-mass basis peaked in September 1991 and August 1992 at the cooler site and October 1991 and September 1992 at the warmer site. In subsequent months lipid levels decreased at the warmer site. These observations suggest that under the experimental conditions, late hanging into the following season was not strongly detrimental to the following crop and… CONTINUE READING
