It was difficult to find a volatile molecule that could be enzymatically produced by a bacterium and also demonstrated to be an efficient ripening inhbitor. There were not many candidates to choose from and after a long search we chose methyl salicylate (MeSA). Previous publications suggested that MeSA could inhibit the ripening of either kiwifruit and tomatoes, at a concentration of  0.5 mM
