In this study, kiwifruit seedlings were used as the materials, were applied 100 mol/L melatonin (MT) solution by root irrigation, to investigated the effects of MT on kiwifruit' antioxidant activity under low light. The results showed the content of TPC, TFC and TFAC of kiwi leaves under MT treatment were significantly higher than that under water and weak light treatments. The antioxidant capacity was measured by three different methods (FRAP, DPPH and ABTS), showed MT treatment significantly increased free radical scavenging ability of kiwi leaves. The indexes of MT treatment showed a trend of first increased and then decreased and last increased. The results provided a theoretical basis for improving the yield and quality of kiwifruit.
