Annual kinetics of changes in fruit and leaf detachment force (DF) after anthesis. The data are based on monthly DF measurements of 25 leaves and fruits taken from various trees. The samples were taken at the indicated Days Post Anthesis (DPA). The vertical dashed lines represent the time of harvest of table and oil olives. Below is an illustration of fruit development after anthesis
