AbstractThe relationship between tissue size and cell number in the ovary and tissue size in the fruit, was studied in eight olive (Olea europaea L.) cultivars with different fruit and ovary size. All tissues in the ovary increased in size with increasing ovary size. Tissue size in the fruits correlated with tissue size in the ovary for both mesocarp and endocarp, but with different correlations: the mesocarp grew about twice as much per unit of initial volume in the ovary. Tissue size in the fruit also correlated with tissue cell number in the ovary. In this case, a single regression fitted all data pooled for both endocarp and mesocarp, implying that a similar tissue mass was obtained in the fruit per initial cell in the ovary, independent of tissues and cultivars. Tissue relative growth from bloom to harvest (i.e. the ratio between final and initial tissue size) differed among cultivars and tissues, but correlated with tissue cell size at bloom, across cultivars and tissues. These results suggest that in olive, tissue growth and partitioning in the fruit is largely determined by the characteristics of the ovary tissues at bloom, providing important information for plant breeding and crop management. © 2012 CSIRO.
