Pectic changes in pears during storage and ripening
- 30 Downloads
The amounts of both protopectin and total pectin increased during storage in all the three varieties.
Anjou pears contained more total and protopectin than the other two varieties.
The data indicate a possibility of the synthesis of protopectin during storage.
