 Abstract
This study had been conducted to investigate the effect of some plant growth regulators inducing fruit enlargement and optimal harvest time in Sageretia thea. Two hundred fifty mepiquat chloride treatment, thidiazuron treatment on full bloom, and gibberellic acid treatment on 7 days before full bloom resulted in the increase of 21.7% in weight, and gibberellic acid treatment 7 days before full bloom, 10 forchlorfenuron treatment 14 days after full bloom, and thidiazuron treatment on full bloom also brought about positive effects on the enlargement of the fruit, increasing 6.3%, 6.3% and 8.1% in its transverse diameter, respectively. Furthermore, the effects of the plant growth regulator treatments on the harvest time of Sageretia thea were determined as follows: the increase in the optimal harvest time of 57.2 - 75.4%, shorter maturation period, by the treatments with mepiquat chloride 7 days after full bloom, gibberellic acid treatment on full bloom, forchlorofenuron 7 days after full bloom and thidiazuron treatment 7 days before full bloom; and the greater effects of plant growth regulator treatments on the fruit maturation in the following order, gibberellic acid > thidiazuron > forchlorofenuron > mepiquat chloride. The results of this study are expected to be used as a reference data to develop Sageretia thea as a new local specific crop for Jeju island.
