Spatial localisation of metabolites was investigated on one representative fruit for each cultivar by direct 1H-NMR profiling of juice or GC-EI-TOF-MS profiling of tissue extracts collected from different locations in the fruit flesh. This experiment has been deposited in the MeRy-B database, a plant metabolomics platform allowing the storage and visualisation of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) metabolic profiles from plants (http://www.cbib.u-bordeaux2.fr/MERYB/).
