A Tares, Effect of Gibberellin and Auxin on Parthenocarpic
Fruit Growth Induction in the CV Micro-Tom of Tomato, J.
Ogata T, Tamura H, Hamada K, Hasegawa K (2010) Effect of gibberelin on setting and growth of non-pollinated parthenocarpic
fruit in mango.
When pollination is not performed manually or is not affected due to absence of a male palm in the vicinity, all the three unfertilized carpels tend to grow together forming three parthenocarpic
fruitlets of small size (Fig.
Gibberellins, especially gibberellic acid (GA3), are used as plant growth regulators to increase the size of seedless berries and induce parthenocarpic
fruit development in grapes (Gianfagna, 1995).
Modern commercial cultivation of fresh figs for the consumer market usually focuses on artificially selected parthenocarpic
cultivars that do not need pollination to produce ripe fruit, but there are still some caprifig orchards in South Africa that depend on the long-established populations of B.
As it is parthenocarpic
, conventional breeding failed or showed limited success; cultivars are found to be polyploidy and available information on genetic and genomics are still limited (Chopra, 2005; Capdeville et al., 2009).
A study of some changes in the growth and development of seeded and parthenocarpic
fruits of date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.).
Sometimes there are parthenocarpic
seeds because of lack of pollen during receptivity.
Greenhouse cucumbers are generally parthenocarpic
. This means the plants only have female flowers (gynoecious), which do not require pollination; therefore, the cucumbers are seedless.
fruits develop without fertilization and are normally seedless.
The figs appeared to be a mutant "parthenocarpic
" variety which had been bred for human consumption.
