Abstract: Gamma irradiation increased the ethylene production rate of tomatoes which were irradiated at the doses of 0.5, 1.0 and 2.5kGy at earlier stage (mature green) of ripening, immediately after irradiation and during the storage at 20℃. The enhanced ethylene formation with irradiation was accompanied with relatively high levels of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC), the activation of ethylene forming enzyme immediately after irradiation and subsequent maintenance of the activity and the induction ability to convert exogenous L-methionine to ethylene as shown in the normal ripening process of non-irradiated fruits. However, the degreening and pigmentation of irradiated tomatoes was suppressed during the storage at 20℃.
