Cut carnation flowers shipped from California by air occasionally arrive at eastern markets in a senescent condition with losses greater in the warm autumn months. CO") and C2II4 production by the flowers has a pattern similar to that of climacteric-class fruits, with senescence correlated with a rise in release of the gases. Cut carnation floXvers show an enormous increase in respiratory heat with increasing temperature- 89 BTU/ton/hour at 0/C versus 14,718 at 50°C. In C2H4-free air, the… CONTINUE READING
