A cleaning and staining procedure for the epidermal membrane of citrus fruits after chemical maceration is suggested to improve the demonstration of the features of the epidermis. The epidermal cells, including stomata, guard cells and oil-gland cover cells, remain attached to the cuticle, which is unaffected by the maceration. Staining of the cuticle makes for easier microscopic observations, counting and measurements of the various anatomical features of the epidermis. This method was used for peel development studies and for the identification of disorders of the peel surface. This method is compared with the "Imprint" method. © 1980.
