Studies on the pungency of red pepper fruit: the effect of mineral nutrition, especially phosphorus nutrition


, : Studies on the pungency of red pepper fruit: the effect of mineral nutrition, especially phosphorus nutrition. Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture, Hirosaki University (18): 96-106

Withholding nutrient N from capsicum plants growing in sand culture reduced top growth and leaf colour. Lack of P or K, however, depressed root growth, and lack of K caused severe leaf necrosis. The capsaicin content of the fruit was very low in plots without P or PK. The rate at which P was supplied also affected fruit growth and capsaicin content both of which were best at 30 p.p.m.

Here we report that EETs have additional fibrinolytic properties. In vascular endothelial cells, physi...
