Abstract

Methyl jasmonate (JA-Me) at concentration of 0.5 % and 1.0 % in lanolin paste applied to the surface of postclimacteric apples cultivars McIntosh, Spartan, and Cortland inhibited ethylene production in slices of cortex with a skin cut to a depth of about 2 mm. The level of 1-aminocyclopropane-l-carboxylic acid (ACC) was decreased in tissues of apples treated with methyl jasmonate. Methyl jasmonate stimulated ethylene production in preclimacteric apples cv. McIntosh.
