Studies on the mechanical injury of fruit. I. Degree of bruising in peach fruits as related to maturity, size of fruit and location of damage

Studies on the mechanical injury of fruit. I. Degree of bruising in peach fruits as related to maturity, size of fruit and location of damage

Journal of the Japanese Society for Horticultural Science 48(3): 374-380

With both impact and compression treatments (simulating damage occurring in post-harvest handling), the severity of injury to peaches was closely correlated with fruit maturity. When fruits were dropped onto a hard board 2.7 cm thick from a height of 20 cm, the allowable flesh firmness was about 2 lb as assessed with the Magness-Taylor pressure tester.
