The experimental plantlets were planted in 3030 pots and filled with coco peat and perlite in the rate of 1:1 and Salicylic acid at 4 levels (0, 1, 2 and 4 mM) was sprayed on strawberry leaves every month regularly. After ripening, fruits were divided into 4 groups. The first group was transferred to the laboratory with one week away after treatment and ripening, the second group was transferred to the laboratory with two week away after treatment and ripening and so the third and fourth groups, were being taken to the laboratory after tree and four week away of receiving treatment, respectively.
