Farmers often resort to the production of auxin-induced parthenocarpic tomato fruits to overcome the adverse climatic conditions which are unfavorable for sufficient fertilization and to lengthen the production period. Even though this practice improves the out-of-season yield, it often undermines fruit quality. In the current study, we examined the effect of induced parthenocarpy in cherry tomato cv. Conchita on the concentration of the main sugars, and on the expression, the activity and the… CONTINUE READING
