This hormone facilitates fruit ripening and chlorophyll degradation. The vegetable hormones are natural chemical substances produced in certain points of the plants that regulate their physiological process
The fruits are divided in climacteric and non-climacteric according to their respiration and ethylene production pattern during ripening:
1. Climacteric fruits significantly increase the respiration and production rhythm of ethylene during ripening. The associated changes (colour, taste, aroma, texture) are fast and intense. Among others:
The ripening process of the non-climacteric fruits is continuous and gradual, keeping at all times low levels of respiration and production of ethylene. Among others:
In addition to the ethylene that the fruit produces, during its storage and transport the fruit is exposed to different and important sources of exogenous ethylene.
The ethylene absorption filters (Ozeano L and Ozeano XL) feature important improvements compared to the ones that are now on the market
One of the main innovative advantages is their high performance drip-proof design:
