Toluidine blue O-stained sections of skin and outer pericarp tissue from the fruit of the good-peeling (a-c) and poor-peeling (d-f) Actinidia eriantha genotypes. The surface layers of dead collapsed skin are arrowed in a, d. Peelability stages: detachability not developed (a, d); detachability developing (b, e); fully detachable peel (c, f). The extent of hypodermal tissue in each genotype is indicated with black double headed arrows (a, d), and the width of peel detached during peeling with red double headed arrows (c, f). L, large cell. Bar = 100 μm
