M AGUSTI, M JUAN, C MESEJO, A MARTINEZ-FUENTES and V ALMELA
The application of 10 mg -1 of 3,5,6-TPA significantly increased final fruit size of īRojo Brillante` persimmon (Diospyros kaki), the response magnitude depending on the date of treatment. Treatment applied at the onset of cell enlargement encouraged the development of fruit which grew faster, reached ripening earlier and were harvested earlier. Yield was slightly, but not significantly, increased by the treatment.
