Wax Deposition on the Fruit Surface of Satsuma Mandarin as Affected by Water Stress

Abstract:
The effect of water stress on fruit surface wax deposition during fruit maturation in‘Okitsu wase’satsuma mandarin (C. unshiu Marc.) was observed with scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Wax deposition increased with fruit maturity. Wax deposition on fruit from water stressed fruit was less than the control. The percentage of wax coverage over stomata was higher in the control than in the water stressed fruit from 141 to 170 days after anthesis (DAA) but was similar to thereafter. These results suggest that wax deposition on the fruit surface is delayed by water stress.
