Abstract When Cavendish banana (Musa acuminata ’Williams') is ripened at tropical ambient temperature (27°C) the peel fails to degreen although the pulp has softened. However, the peel will degreen to a yellow colour when the fruit is ripened at 18°C. The inability of the peel to degreen could be because of the retention of thylakoid membranes in the plastids and chlorophyll during the ripening process. A study was carried out to investigate the relationships between plastid ultrastructure… Expand
