Calcium and copper effects on fruit quality of 'Golden Delicious' apples



Calcium and copper effects on fruit quality of 'Golden Delicious' apples



Acta Horticulturae ( 464): 41-46



Three trials were carried out in Golden Delicious apple orchards at Cygnet (1993-94 season), Cradoc (1995-96 season) and Grove (1995-96 season), Tasmania, Australia, to study the effects of early season sprays of calcium hydroxide and calcium hydroxide mixed with copper hydroxide. Calcium plus copper sprays, but not calcium alone sprays, caused an increase in fruit skin strength and flesh firmness after storage.
