Quality standards of fruit and their economic impact

, : Quality standards of fruit and their economic impact. Acta Horticulturae (40): 461-465

Limitation of the number of cultivars is creating a certain uniformity of fruit production, but natural or agronomic conditions are giving way to differences in consumption quality which are not always apparent. Tests of quality have been made for 'Golden Delicious' apples, and are being studied for other cultivars of apples, peaches and pears. It is therefore possible to establish a quality prognostic as early as harvesting and to devise a new marketing strategy for fresh fruit.
