RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN FRUIT MINERAL CONTENT AND THE ALBINISM DISORDER IN ‘ELSANTA’ STRAWBERRY PLANTS.

F. Lieten, R. Marcelle
The mineral composition of albino fruit is different from normal fruits. Ratios of N to Ca and K to Ca were greater in albino than in normal fruit. Nevertheless, when nutrient solutions with higher K/Ca ratios were applied, the percentage of albino fruits was not affected very much. The presence of ammonium nitrate and silicon in the nutrient solution also influenced the K/Ca ratio in the fruits and the occurence of albinism.
