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

, : 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

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.

We aimed to define a more robust indicator for banana harvest date that ensures an optimal fruit green life (GL). Our hypothesis was that development rather than growth would account for GL more accurately. To this end, five indicators were compar...

The pH and the colour of the pericarp (rind) were affected by the pH of the acid and by the duration of the treatments. The fumig...
