    • F2-a Fruits were treated daily with 5 min of red light (R) followed immediately by a mock treatment with 15 min of far-red light (FR) (see “Materials and Methods”).

    • F2-b Fruits were treated daily with 5-min R followed immediately by 15-min FR.

    • F2-c Fruits were treated daily with a mock treatment of 5-min R followed immediately by a mock treatment with 15-min FR (see “Materials and Methods”).
