Abstract

Fruits of most avocado varieties do not soften while still on the tree. Softening of picked fruit, with an accompanying increase of oxygen uptake, can be speeded by supplying chemicals to inhibit respiration of the fruit. In contrast, softening was delayed in these tests by supplying a preparation of unknown composition obtained from a bacterium grown anaerobically in a sucrose solution.
