Immunolabelling of good-peeling (a-c) and poor-peeling (d-f) genotypes of Actinidia eriantha fruit using the JIM5 antibody conjugated to Alexa™488 (green) for detection of unesterified and low-esterified homogalacturonan epitopes in the pectin backbone. Position of the auto-fluorescing dead skin layer indicated by (*), and double headed arrows indicate the extent of hypodermal tissue in each genotype. Peelability stages: detachability not developed (a, d); detachability developing (b, e); fully detachable peel (c, f). Bar = 100 μm
