Ethylene Production in Apples

"Apples are known to ripen quickly compared to other fruits due to the high amounts of ethylene they contain. An unripe fruit has low levels of ethylene but as the fruit matures, ethylene production increases as a signal to induce fruit ripening. Ethylene is a gaseous hormone that is produced from fruits and induces the ripening process."
