Interests: fruit quality; horticultural plants; quality formation mechanisms
The formation of fruit quality includes many aspects, such as organic acids, anthocyanins, carotenoids, and polyphenols. Their contents change dynamically in the process of fruit development and vary among different species and even varieties, thus resulting in fruit products with a wide range of shapes, colors, and flavors. In addition, these quality indicators are also regulated by external environmental factors, such as light and temperature. Understanding the physiological processes and regulatory mechanisms of fruit quality formation can lay the foundation for further improving fruit nutritional value.
This Special Issue will focus on the “Formation Mechanisms and Regulation of Fruit Quality”. We invite you to share your contributions on the following topics: 1) the characteristics of the fruit quality formation of some special fruits; 2) regulatory mechanisms of fruit quality. It is targeted at a wide range of fruit species, such as grapes, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, apples, citrus, plums, pears, and more.
