Abstract

Ethylene production in preclimacteric banana fruit was increased by water stress, but diminished exponentially when the stressing conditions were removed. Under continuing stress, ethylene production was maintained at a high level. It is concluded that ethylene is a likely mediator of green-life reduction and of the higher respiration rates found in water-stressed fruits.
