|Expression levels of key candidate genes in red fruit|
|Relative gene expression||Enzyme activity|
|Cultivar||AsA (nmol gFW-1)||SlGGP1||SlMDHAR1||SlMDHAR3||MDHAR|
|Santorini||826.4 ± 32.3||a||2.448 ± 0.11||a||0.346 ± 0.13||a||1.222 ± 0.65||a||0.684 ± 0.05||a|

Relative expression levels of SlGGP1, SlMDHAR1 and SlMDHAR3, as well as MDHAR enzyme activity (μmol NADH min-1 mg FW-1) in ‘Santorini’ and ‘Ailsa Craig’ red fruits. qPCR values were normalized against CAC. Results are presented as the mean of at least four biological (each of them consist of a pool of three samples of equivalent stage) and two technical replications ± SD. Different letters indicate a significant difference (P < 0.05) between values based on Duncan's multiple-range-test in SAS.
