Spraying fruit trees with water before harvesting and its effect on the climate within the tree, fruit removal force and fruit firmness in stone fruit



Spraying fruit trees with water before harvesting and its effect on the climate within the tree, fruit removal force and fruit firmness in stone fruit



Die Wasserbespruhung der Obstbaume vor der Ernte und ihre Wirkung auf Baumklima, Haltekraft und Fruchtfestigkeit bei Steinobst: 94



The temperature of cherry fruits on the tree was found to be higher than that of the surrounding air. Fruit removal force and fruit firmness decreased during ripening, but varied during the day with changes in the temperature of the fruit flesh, decreasing as fruit flesh temperature increased. Trees of 4 sweet and 6 sour cherry cvs were cooled by spraying with 25-40 l water/tree for 50-80 s, some 5-10 min before mechanical harvesting.
