The auxin content of ovules and developing seeds is much greater than that of other parts of fruits, and it is considered possible, even though not yet proved, that they produce auxin. Auxin other than that added artificially is found in fruits that have been produced by treating the flower by phenylacetic acid. The probable role of auxin in the growth of parthenocarpic and non-parthenocarpic fruit is discussed.
