Altering tomato fruit ripening and softening, key traits for fleshy fruit. During ripening, fruit will gradually soften and this is largely the result of fruit cell wall degradation . Softening can improve the edible quality of fruit but also significantly reduces fruit resistance to pathogenic microorganisms and mechanical damage during storage and transportation, which can reduce the storage and shelf life and lead to fruit deterioration and loss.
