Abstract

A low concentration (0.10 mM) of jasmonic acid (JA) did not affect fruit ripening and development in 'Tufts' and 'Cruz' strawberries. However, high concentrations (0.25, 0.50 and 1.00 mM) caused fruits to ripen earlier than the control, significantly increased berry size in the first two weeks of harvest, and increased total yield per plant. No concentration of JAaffected soluble solids concentration or total titratable acidity in either cultivar.
