Actively growing juice-vesicle explants, established from small lemon (Citrus limon L. Burm. f. var. ;Eureka') fruits, were cultured in vitro on defined media. The juice vesicles continued to enlarge in culture for several months, without callus proliferation, and their initial growth was promoted by indoleacetic acid, gibberellic acid, and N(6)-benzyladenine.The metabolic competence of the explants, and its relevance to whole fruit development, was further investigated.
