Apple fruit development

Apple fruit development. Apple fruit at various stages of development. A, 0 DAA, B, 14 DAA, C, 35 DAA, D, 60 DAA, E, 87 DAA, F, 132 DAA, G, 146 DAA. H, diagram of fruit development showing the timing of major physiological events and the sampling time points, adapted from [17–19]. Ripening is shown as a solid and dashed red, solid from the time of the climacteric and dashed for events prior to the climacteric. Bar = 1 cm.
