Appearance (A), average fruit weight (B), and the correlation between average fruit weight and ATP level (C) during development and ripening of litchi fruit. Left to right: fruit at 50 DAF, 60 DAF, color-breaker stage at 70 DAF, red-ripe stage at 80 DAF, and over-ripe stage at 90 DAF. Bar = 1 cm; DAF, days after flowering; FW, fresh weight. Data are the mean ± standard deviation (n = 20 in B; n = 3–5 in C).
