  1. a Partenocarpic fruit, b Fruit derived from artificial pollination, TSS1 = Total Soluble Solids (Brix) measured in winter 2005, TSS2 = measured in summer 2006, TSS3 = measured in autumn 2007. Mean values are followed by standard error (see Methods for experiment design). The letters H and L represent values statistically significantly higher or lower than MT, respectively (P < 0.05, Student t-test).
