The number of cells and the mean cell volume in the mesocarps of fruits from peach genotypes with different percentages of the genome of Prunus davidiana, a wild, related, species, were evaluated. The mesocarp mass varied greatly between the four groups of genotypes. The mean cell volume and the number of cells were negatively correlated within each group. This correlation can be interpreted as a relationship of competition between cells. In order to describe the type of competition in the… CONTINUE READING
