Loquat is considered as a non-climacteric fruit; however, there is an evidence of a climacteric-like maturation. Therefore, it seems its ripening behavior has yet to be satisfactory classified. Because autocatalytic regulation of ethylene production during fruit ripening is one of the primary features defining climacteric-like fruit maturation, we examined its ability of autocatalysis during ripening by applying the ethylene-releasing compound ethephon to the on-tree-fruit or ethylene to… CONTINUE READING
