Abstract Postharvest ethylene-mediated floral abscission induced by Botrytis cinerea infection is a major problem for the waxflower (Chamelaucium) industry. Socio-environmentally sound measures for Botrytis control are desirable alternatives to synthetic fungicides. S-carvone is an essential oil reported to effectively inhibit several fungal pathogens on potato. In the present study, S-carvone concentrations of 0.64 and 1.27 mM significantly reduced B. cinerea conidial germination in vitro on slides. S-carvone concentrations of 2.54 and 5.08 mM inhibited B. cinerea germination and suppressed mycelial growth in vitro on agar. However, S-carvone treatments of 2.54 and 5.08 mM applied to cut waxflower ‘My Sweet Sixteen’ ((C. floriferum ´ C. uncinatum) ´ C. axillare) sprigs generally gave no positive effects against Botrytis infection and flower abscission, actually promoting both disorders.
