Lipids from Lycopersicon esculentum Fruit Skin

Free (FL) (1.25 and 1.22%) and bound lipids (BL) (1.75 and 1.63%) were isolated from skin of ripe Lycopersicon esculentum fruit grown in open plots and in a hothouse. The groups and classes of lipids were established. The FL consisted of 9.3% natural fatty acid ethyl esters and 3.7% carotinoid pigments. The compositions of the hydrocarbons, aliphatic and cyclic alcohols, and fatty acids of all lipid classes were determined. Saturated fatty acids, mainly 16:0, dominated the majority of acyl-containing lipids. Acid 18:2 dominated the unsaturated acids.
