Role of salicylic acid in postharvest management of peach and plum fruits: A review

Author(s):

Abstract:
Salicylic acid (SA) is a naturally occurring phenolic compound that is widely distributed in plants and it is considered as hormone due to its regulatory role in plants. SA has attracted considerable interest because of its role in modulating plant responses to biotic and abiotic stresses during postharvest storage of fruits. SA has been shown to exhibit a high potential in delaying ripening, maintaining fruit quality, and controlling postharvest losses. Use of SA could be a promising technology for enhancing postharvest storability and retaining the nutritional quality of peach and plum fruits after harvest.
