Title: Hormonal physiology of fruit growth

Abstract: The formation of a fruit involves a multiple hormonal control. Waves of hormones are produced from the time of pollination to that maturity and ripening of fruits. The failure of formation or the availability of hormones in these organs often results in imperfect seed setting, fruit formation or ripening. The seeds in the fruits are rich sources of auxins, gibberellins and cytokinins and these hormones emanating from the seeds stimulate growth of the fruit tissues surrounding them and also control abscission. These types of endogenous plant hormones should they be required for fruit growth, can also be supplied by some other part or tissue part of the plant seeds. It is suggested that the regulation of fruit growth might be a result of the interactions of different plant hormones in any given fruit.
