Fruits of mid(‘O’Henry’), late (’Airtime’), and extra-late-season (‘Autumn Gem’) peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch] cultivars were examined for changes in cell wall structure and cytochemistry that accompany the onset of mealiness and leatheriness of the mesocarp due to chilling injury. The peaches were stored at 10C for up to 18 days or at SC for up to 29 days. Plastic-embedded sections were stained by the Schiff’s-periodic acid reaction, Calcofluor white MR2, and Coriphosphine to demonstrate… CONTINUE READING
