Studies on water transport through the sweet cherry fruit surface: III. Conductance of the cuticle in relation to fruit size.

Abstract

Rain-cracking of sweet cherry fruit has been related to water absorption through the fruit surface and large fruit has been reported to be more susceptible to cracking than small fruit. Therefore, the effect of fruit size on water conductance of the cuticular membrane (CM) of exocarp segments excised from cheek, suture or stylar end region of mature sweet… (More)
