Special Issue Information
Fruit quality is a key factor related to the consumer’s consumption and the producer’s income, and thus attracts a great deal of interest for both growers and scientists. Fruit quality is determined by several factors such as size, sweetness, flavor, peel and flesh color, firmness, freshness, and bioactive compounds, which are affected by genetic composition and growing conditions. Recently, the management of fruit quality has become very important for sustaining the fruit industry, as climate changes as a result of global warming are accelerating and becoming more severe everywhere. Therefore, advanced knowledge on the physiology and management of fruit quality is required in order to improve the cultural performance and introduce new cultivars under a full understanding of the complexity of fruit quality. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to deliver advanced scientific information by inviting articles and reviews related to the physiology and management of fruit quality, especially in Citrus and Actinidia crops.
