Fleshy Fruit Epidermis is a Protective Barrier Under Water Stress

Fruits may be exposed to several unfavourable mechanical, climatic and biological factors along ripening. Harvest and storage also challenge fruit integrity before fruits reach the consumer. In order to preserve its properties/characteristics it is essential that the structural and chemical integrity of the cuticle is maintained throughout fruit development and expansion.To address some of these questions, the present chapter aimed at revising the existing information on cuticle physiology, composition, structure and properties, also considering its impact on fruit under abiotic stresses, with an emphasis on water deficit. We also address the recent molecular progresses in cuticle biosynthesis pathways and highlight some of the major research questions that will have to be dealt with in the future.
