Relationship between physiological maturity and percent dry matter of avocados


, : Relationship between physiological maturity and percent dry matter of avocados. California Avocado Society Yearbook 1992; 75: 71-85

The California maturity standard for avocado fruits has been based on the % oil content, estimated by the Halowax method. Results of a preliminary study in 1985-86 strongly indicated that a measurable relationship existed between physiological maturity and the % DM of the pulp. In a 3-year study the fruits of various cultivars, from a range of sites, were sampled every 2 weeks until past the point of full marketability or until the commercial harvest date.
