1-Methylcyclopropene and extreme ULO inhibit superficial scald in a different way highlighting the physiological basis of this disorder in pear
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-02-21)
Despite years of research on the biochemical basis of superficial scald in apples, relatively little is known about the specific regulatory processes involved in pears. To gain further knowledge on these processes, different ...
New insights on the ripening pattern of ‘Blanquilla’ pears: A comparison between on- and off-tree ripened fruit
(Postharvest Biology and Technology, 2019-01-05)
To better understand the key processes involved in the ripening of attached fruit, we have investigated physico-chemical and biochemical changes occurring in ‘Blanquilla’ pear during on-tree (attached fruit) and off-tree ...
Ripening behaviour and consumer acceptance of ‘Conference’ pears during shelf life after long term DCA-storage
(Postharvest Biology and Technology, 2019-05-27)
With the increasing demand for ready to eat fruit, understanding how pear quality evolves during shelf life (SL) is of paramount importance for retailers. Accordingly, the relationships between physicochemical quality ...
