Development of ground color references as a maturity index for southeastern peaches



Development of ground color references as a maturity index for southeastern peaches



Paper, American Society of Agricultural Engineers (83-6537): 17 pp



The use of ground colour references as a uniform maturity index was analysed for early, mid, and late season cultivars. Ground colour paths during growth, maturation, and ripening were similar for the 3 cvs. A series of colour references was specified along this path. Effects of packing house operations on ground colour were analyzed. Fuzz removal by brushing had little effect on ground colour.
