A list of representative climacteric and non-climacteric fruit. A more extensive list is provided by Watkins (2002)
Climacteric fruit, such as tomato, apple, pear, and melon (Table
16.1), are characterized by a ripening-associated increase in
respiration and in ethylene production.
By contrast, non-climacteric fruits, such as orange, grape, and
pineapple (Table 16.1), are characterized by the lack of
ethylene-associated respiratory peak.
