For example, Wojcik and Cieslinski (2000) reported that boron sprayed onto apple trees after flowering increased fruit calcium concentrations in the two cultivars studied, yet fruit firmness after storage increased in one cultivar and decreased in the second. Excess boron has been associated with premature softening in kiwifruit during storage. This has been linked to lower concentrations of calcium in fruit where boron status was high (Smith and Clark, 1989).
