Concerning to the superiority of chitosan, this might be due to its multitude increasing of biological processes in the plant tissue, including the stimulation of chitinases, accumulation of phytoalexins, synthesis of proteinase inhibitors and increasing lignifications (Wojdyla, 2001).

The present study indicated that the differences between hulled and hull-less seed coats could be attributed to the different degrees of lignifications that are present in the H, S, and P cell layers.
According to the table of correlation traits, there was a highest positive correlation between fruits weight loss percentage and fruits volume loss percentage(r = 0.823) because SA can activate enzymes oxidase and peroxidase by intensifying lignifications of fruits cellular walls which results in the loss of the weight and volume of the fruits (Table 5).The effect of cultivars on fruit volume loss percentage revealed that Paros cultivar had the highest loss (18%) compare with two other cultivars meanwhile there wasn't significant differences between them (Table 3).
Some studies have shown that the unavailable portion for fermentation is determined by the extent of lignifications of the cell wall polymers and the cutin content that is associated with the cellulose and hemicellulose [20].
