Synergistic roles of leaf boron and calcium during the growing season in affecting sugar and starch accumulation in ripening apple fruit

Abstract

Fruit sugar content is one of the most important flavor quality traits in the fresh market. Minerals, such as boron (B) and calcium (Ca), are associated with fruit sugar and starch accumulation in many plant species. To better understand the roles of B and Ca in affecting sugar and starch accumulation in apples, 2 g L−1 Na2B4O7·10H2O or 10 g L−1 CaCl2 was… (More)
