Interplay between hormones and assimilates during pear development and ripening and its relationship with the fruit postharvest behaviour
(Plant Science, 2019-11-21)
The ability of European pears (Pyrus communis L.) to ripen immediately after harvest is cultivar-dependent and relies on a range of physiological and biochemical events occurring during fruit growth and ...
Double-sided battle: The role of ethylene during Monilinia spp. infection in peach at different phenological stages
(Plant Physiology and Biochemistry, 2019-10-02)
Controversy exists on whether ethylene is involved in determining fruit resistance or susceptibility against biotic stress. In this work, the hypothesis that ethylene biosynthesis in peaches at different ...
Spatial distribution of flavor components and antioxidants in the flesh of ‘Conference’ pears and its relationship with postharvest pathogens susceptibility
(Postharvest Biology and Technology, 2019-09-13)
The spatial distribution of dry matter, ethylene production, respiration rate, organic acids, sugars, antioxidants, volatiles and fungal (Penicillium expansum and Rhizopus stolonifer) growth was evaluated ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
