A major growth inhibitory substance of tulip bulbs (Tulipa gesneriana L. cv Paul Richter) has been unequivocally shown to be abscisic acid (ABA). The ABA methyl ester of the free ether-soluble acid fractions of tulip organs had the identical retention time on gas-liquid chromatography with electron capture detector as authentic ABA methyl ester. In addition, the mass spectra were the same. On a unit dry matter basis, the basalplate and floral shoot contained 3.6 and 2.6 times more ABA than the fleshy scales, respectively.
