Activity of transglycosylases and hydrolases acting on hemicelluloses in the peel and outer pericarp of the good-peeling (GP; white bars) and poor-peeling (PP; black bars) Actinidia eriantha genotypes. Activities: xyloglucan transglycosylase (HS extract) (a, b); mannan transglycosylase (MET; HS extract) (c, d); xylan transglycosylase (XylET; HS extract) (e, f); xyloglucanase (LS extract) (g, h); endo-β-mannanase (LS extract) (i, j); xylanase activity (HS extract) (k, l). LS, low salt; HS, high salt. Peelability stages: ND, detachability not developed; DD detachability developing; FD, fully detachable peel. n = 3 ± standard deviation. (^) represents statistical significance between GP and PP at the same developmental stage (ND, DD, or FD). In E and J, (#, ##) represent statistical significance of FD compared to ND within a genotype (# GP, ## PP)
