Abstract :
The metaxenic effect in date palm fruit cv. Hillawi induced by pollinating with two types of pollen, namely Ghannami Akdhar and Khiri Adi, was investigated in relation to changes in the concentration of free IAA during fruit development. The results showed that the pollen type had a significant effect on the concentration of free IAA, with fruits produced by the Khikri Adi pollen having the highest concentration as compared to fruits produced by the Ghannami Akdhar pollen. The results also showed that the pollen type Khikri caused a significant increase in fruit size, fresh weight of the whole fruit, pulp and seed in comparison with fruits produced by the Ghannami Akhdar pollen.
