Abstract Low light stress is a major limiting factor for melon to reach its full potential of fruit yield and quality in cold season production. This study investigated the effect of low light stress on sucrose synthesis and galactosyl-sucrose oligosaccharide loading in melon leaves, galactosyl-sucrose oligosaccharide unloading, and sugar accumulation in fruits under greenhouse conditions using the low light-tolerant cultivar Yujinxiang and the low light-sensitive cultivar Yuxue. The results… CONTINUE READING
