Changes in the petrol-soluble, 80 per cent. ethanol-soluble, and insoluble fractions of the mesocarp of the avocado fruit were followed during 6 months development on the tree and during storage at 20°C of the fully grown fruit. Changes in triglyceride fatty acids, lipid phosphorus, insoluble phosphorus, sugars, protein, and soluble nitrogen were also studied.
