ABSTRACT This study investigated the effects of gibberellin (GA 3 ) on the fruit development, pigmentation and biochemical properties of wax apple. The wax apple trees were rubbing treated with 0, 20, 50 and 100 mgGA 3 /l under field conditions. The localized application (rubbing) of 50 mg GA 3 /l significantly increased the fruit set, fruit length and diameter, color development, weight and yield compared to the control. In addition, GA 3 treatments significantly reduced the fruit drop. With… Expand
