Transcriptome of wax apple (Syzygium samarangense) provides insights into nitric oxide-induced delays of postharvest cottony softening

Wax apple (Syzygium samarangense) is an important tropical fruit crop in Southeast Asia. The rapid cottony softening that occurs after harvest significantly influences the nutrition, flavour and market value of the fruit. Nitric oxide (NO) fumigation has been used to delay the cottony softening process in wax apple; however, the underlying molecular… CONTINUE READING
