Relation between quality and price of golden delicious apples in Belgium

Acta Horticulturae (40): 467-475

Relation between quality and price of golden delicious apples in Belgium

The relation between quality and retail prices of 'Golden Delicious' apples has been investigated in Belgium during the winter season of 1971-1972. Two samples have been taken of apples offered for consumption in retail stores in the most important towns in Belgium. The first sample consisted of 160 units and the second of 119 units of apples. Sampling took place in December 1971 and in May 1972. The apples have been tested on organoleptic and visible quality.
