CONTROL OF FRUIT REPENING
- Feb 22, 2019 -

Control of  fruit ripening, initiation  or delay, is  generally dependent on factors  that  affect  ethylene  production  or  action.  Treatment  of  pre-climacteric fruits with exogenous ethylene advances the onset of ripening.

This  response  is  used  widely  in  commercial  practices  to  achieve controlled ripening of fruits that are picked and transported in a mature, but  unripe  state  and  ripened just  before marketing. Delay  of  fruit  ripening  and  prolonging  shelf-life  can  be  achieved  by different post-harvest procedures related to ethylene production or action.
