|Abstract:||The aim of this chapter is to give a general idea of the fruit response to water-scarcity conditions, paying special attention to fruit water relations modification and fruit composition changes, which are key for fruit quality. The strengths and weaknesses of fruit water relations measurement parameters are discussed. The incidence of some pre- and postharvest fruit physiological disorders related to water stress (cracking, creasing, pitting, splitting, and watercore) was also considered. Current knowledge of water flow in developing fruits, fruit water relations under drought, and the effect of water deficit on fruit quality characteristics, mainly those related to human health, are discussed and new research objectives are proposed. In addition, the need to differentiate the products from deficit-irrigated trees (hydroSOS) from any others on the market is discussed.|
