Abstract Indication of starch hydrolysis by iodine staining is widely used in determining when to harvest apples, yet few quantitative changes in apple starch have been reported and no reports relate these to changes in iodine staining. Starch accumulation and degradation during fruit development was examined in ‘Fuji’ and ‘Royal Gala’ apples. Both cultivars displayed similar patterns in starch accumulation and degradation. Starch concentrations decreased until 30 days after anthesis, then… CONTINUE READING
