Expression of polygalacturonase (PG), pectate lyase (PL), xyloglucan transglycosylase/hydrolase (XTH) and expansin (EXP) genes in Actinidia eriantha good-peeling (GP; white and light grey bars) and poor-peeling (PP; black and dark grey bars) genotypes over the development of detachability. Note different scales in panels. OP = outer pericarp. Peelability stages: ND, detachability not developed; DD, detachability developing; FD, fully detachable peel. n = 3 ± standard error. (^) represents statistical significance between peel tissue and (^^) between outer pericarp tissue of GP and PP at the same developmental stage (ND, DD, or FD) (p value <0.05)
