Improving melon shelf life with non-GMO molecular breeding technique

KeyGene® applies a multidimensional approach to improve the shelf life in melon. In climacteric fruits, like apple, ripening continues after picking. Non-climacteric fruits like grape only ripen while still attached to the plant. Melon has both climacteric and non-climacteric varieties. The climacteric melon has better aromas and it is easier to recognize when they are ripe. The non-climacteric melon hardly ripens after picking but has a longer shelf life. How combine the best of both types of fruits in order to control the ripening process and to improve shelf life?
