S curve - effect of fruit
age on fruit optimal biomass:
Fraction of final optimal (best) fruit biomass (Y) for a given fruit age (X). Fruits tend to grow in an s-
curve fashion, so simulated fruit demands for biomass from the plant
attempt to follow this curve.
Fruit days to ripen once full-sized: The number of days it takes for a fruit on this plant to ripen
once it has stopped expanding. This is only for drawing (it has a different color when it is ripe) and does
not affect the model.
Fruit maximum days for flower to create: The number of days a flower will accumulate biomass
towards creation of a fruit before it gives up and creates a smaller fruit. This simulates the plant's
concentration of resources on newer meristems.
Fruit maximum days to grow: The number of days a fruit will accumulate biomass towards
maturity before it gives up and stops growing. This simulates the plant's concentration of resources on
Fruit minimum days to grow: The shortest number of days in which a fruit can grow to maturity,
no matter how much biomass is available. This simulates physical limitations on the rate of growth.
Fruit number of section 3D objects: The number of sections on a fruit.
Fruit optimum biomass: The biomass (dry weight) of a complete or best fruit.
Fruit ripe section back face color: The back face (facing out) color for sections of a ripe fruit.
Fruit ripe section front face color: The front face (facing in) color for sections of a ripe fruit.
Fruit section 3D object: The 3D object used to draw fruit sections. Fruit sections do not simulate
real objects; they just make it easier to draw roughly spherical fruits.
Fruit section 3D object scale at full size: The scale for the 3D object used to draw fruit sections
when they are full-sized.
Fruit sections are radially arranged: If 'yes' the 3D objects used to draw sections of a fruit are
drawn rotated at different angles to make them form a circle around the stem. If 'no' they are all drawn at
the same angle (and usually there is only one oddly-shaped 3D object).
Fruit stalk strength index: This parameter is not used in this version of the simulation.
Fruit unripe section back face color: The back face (facing out) color for sections of an unripe
Fruit unripe section front face color: The front face (facing in) color for sections of an unripe
