A practical maturity index for clingstone peaches



A practical maturity index for clingstone peaches



Deciduous Fruit Grower 38(8): 273-274



In 3-year studies on peaches for fresh consumption, fruits of the cultivars Malherbe, Neethling and Kakamas were picked and divided into 3 colour groups before packing, viz. green (mainly yellow-green), optimum (mainly greenish-yellow), and ripe (mainly fully yellow). They were then packed and stored at -0.5 degrees C for 4 weeks, followed by holding at 20 degrees for 4 days.
