Deposition of Triterpenoids and Steroids in Cuticular Waxes of Representative Fruits of Rosaceae Family during Their Development and Maturation

Many chemical changes occur during fruit ripening, not only in the mesocarp but also in the epicarp, such as changes in triterpenoid and steroid content of fruit cuticular waxes, which can alter pathogen susceptibility and mechanical qualities of the fruit surface. However, research into the links between fruit cuticular composition, ripening-related changes, and the consequent…
