Fruit from trees treated with up to three times normal amounts of N have not shown any greater tendency to internal breakdown than fruit from trees receiving no N. N fertilizers may delay maturity, but at the rates generally applied, fruit quality and storage quality at maturity are not seriously affected. Adverse effect of N on color is due partly to delayed maturity, partly to shading as a result of excessive vegetative growth, and partly to a higher chlorophyll content in the fruit. 1% N in dry weight of leaf sample was associated with a decrease of 5% in the surface of the fruit colored (Magness 1939).
