Titratable acidity (TA) was determined by the AOAC method (1995) in the epicarp
and the pulp; sample was titrated with 0.
2013), whose high value was due to the presence of epicarp
in the PPF.
The seeds in which seed coat was not removed (intact seeds) did not germinate even when treated with different concentrations of GA3, IAA and also after removal of epicarp

28 Brix; they concluded that sweetness, pulp content, and epicarp
thickness are important characteristics for the cultivation and marketing of Mexican plum varieties originating from Yucatan.
While many arecoid fruits have a smooth epicarp
surface, some members of the Cocoseae subtribe Attaleinae, such as Attalea, Syagrus and Lytocaryum, have furrows or striations in the epicarp
similar to those found in Tripylocarpa.
Fruit ellipsoid to obovoid or subglobose, shortly rostrate, epicarp
sparsely to densely spiny, mesocarp fleshy-fibrous, endocarp bony, externally with appressed blackish, anastomizing fibers forming a star-like pattern around germinating pores, these located in distal third or sub-apical, endosperm homogeneous.
