Changes in ethylene rate and ground color in peaches (cv. Red Haven and Marqueen) and nectarines (cv. Fantasia) during maturation and ripening



Changes in ethylene rate and ground color in peaches (cv. Red Haven and Marqueen) and nectarines (cv. Fantasia) during maturation and ripening



Acta Horticulturae ( 343): 70-72



Studies were carried out to find objective maturity indices that were correlated with physiological maturity for each cultivar. Fruit maturation on the tree was monitored by harvesting fruits of similar diameter and tree position every 4 days. Ethylene rate (using a static system) and ground colour (Hunter a value) were measured after one day at 20 degrees C. Firmness and soluble solids content were measured for half the number of harvested fruits.
