Sustained water constraints during berry maturation induce a reliance on carbohydrate reserves to support berry sugar accumulation, while reduced leaf to fruit ratio intensifies this reliance. Besides the importance of post harvest carbohydrate reserve replenishment when root carbohydrate reserves were depleted during berry maturation, the reserves are also refilled during maturation when berry sugar accumulation slows down. This study showed distinctly that root carbohydrate replenishment could already start a few weeks before harvest.
