The fruit quality attributes used in this comparative impact analysis study included skin color, firmness, skin browning, sap burn, rots, physical damage and lenticels
Their main functions are to grow into the soil surface and produce rootlets for nutrient uptake; to allow gaseous exchange, by means of their system of lenticels
and spongy air storage tissue (aerenchyma), when the soil is flooded; and to anchor the tree in the unstable soil.
Currently, we have observed that lenticel
rot affects an estimated 30% of harvested potato tubers in Kern County.
The main physiological disorders of apple orchards are lack of calcium, bitter pit, lenticels
breakdown, jonathan spot, internal breakdown, watercore and stem-end splitting (CURRY et al.
Fruits were analyzed for soluble solids content, titratable acidity, starch pattern index, flesh firmness, skin background color, and incidence of russeting, bitter pit and lenticels
blotch pit, and for N, K, Ca and Mg, at harvest and after cold storage.

formation appears to be fostered by ethylene that forms in response to anaerobiosis (Kozlowski, 1982b).
Among the adaptations that fit tupelos to their wet substrate are protruding underwater lenticels
and proliferation of new roots (Hook et al.
Oil spills like the Bocas del Toro event in Panama are particularly damaging to mangroves because the oil clogs the lenticels
and smothers the roots.
Liana; branchlets cylindrical, striated, with lenticels
, pubescent, without interpetiolar gland fields.
During fruit ripening, the epicarp is dark green with light lenticels
and becomes dark purple to black, slightly glaucous at full maturity (Kubitzki & Renner, 1982).
The bark is gray, with chipped lengthwise lenticels
