New Bulletins in Fruit & Vegetable Production

  This study aimed to estimate genetic parameters of Turiaçu pineapple clones using mixed models; and estimate genetic correlation coefficient between  traits, to provide important information to breeding programs. For this, 19 pineapple plants were visually selected and...
  Pepper is one of the most important vegetable crops in China. Consumers in China are increasingly demanding high  quality pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) fruit. As in flood crops, natural disasters, such as flooding, might not only affect pepper yield, but also significantly impact fruit...
  Salinity is one of major environmental problem which is limiting the agricultural production. This research was conducted to evaluate the effect of re-watering on Brassica napus L., and determination of an appropriate regime for dilution of salted water by studying photosynthetic...
  The cultivation of melon (Cucumis melo L.) in greenhouses has contributed to the increased incidence of fungal diseases, particularly gummy stem blight caused by Didymella bryoniae (Fuckel) Rehm. This disease is currently considered the main disease affecting this crop,...

  Apple cultivars’ storability could be strengthened through known techniques of cold storage, advanced industries of control atmosphere or other routine usages like fruit pre-cooling followed by immersion in CA++ solution, depending on genetic potential of the plant...
  La aplicación de cloruro de calcio (CaCl2) a frutos y hortalizas en poscosecha es comúnmente utilizado para mantener la firmeza del fruto, proteger de patógenos y retardar la madurez. Por esto, se trataron frutos de ciruela seleccionados en estados de madurez comercial...
  The effect of coating blanched pumpkin cubes with sodium alginate (SA) on water loss (WL), solid gain (SG), physicochemical qualities and cell structure of osmotic dehydrated (OD) pumpkin was studied. Pumpkin samples coated with 1.0%, 2.0%, 3.0% SA (w/w), and samples without...
