High external sucrose concentration inhibits the expansion of detached tomato fruits grown in a novel semi-open device

Abstract

The effect of sap sucrose concentration on fruit expansion is poorly understood. We investigated the effects of sucrose concentration on growth of tomato fruits, detached from the plant after the cell multiplication phase. A semi-open device was built to grow detached fruits, where the fruit pedicel was immersed in a nutrient solution which was… (More)
