The use of spectrophotometry to determine colour development in fruit during post harvest maturing

24th International Conference on Agricultural Mechanization Proceedings of a conference on ' Agricultural Mechanization in Latin America: Present and Future' , held in Zaragoza, Spain, 1-4 April 1992: 525-531
The use of spectrophotometry to determine colour development in fruit during post harvest maturing
Pear varieties Blanquilla and Decana de Comice and apple varieties Golden Delicious and Starking were studied during their postharvest maturing period. Reflectance spectra from the skins of 5 fruits of each variety were studied. The curves obtained were statistically treated and a group of wavelengths was selected and subjected to discriminant analysis.
