Relationship of maturity as indicated by flesh color to quality of canned clingstone peaches



Relationship of maturity as indicated by flesh color to quality of canned clingstone peaches



Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology Journal 9(1): 43-46



Clingstone peaches (cv. 'Babygold 5 and 7') in maturity from unripe to over-ripe were classified according to flesh color into 10 maturity groups, using a Hunterlab D25P Color Difference Meter. The canned peach halves were graded on the bases of color, texture and flavor by an expert panel. Maturity affected the quality of the canned peach halves. Canning improved the color of unripe peaches. The maturity groups giving the best quality canned products were those with Hunter aL readings of 4.0-6.0 for the raw flesh color of 'Babygold 5' and 10.0-12.0 for that of 'Babygold 7'. The average drained weight of canned halves of the less mature peaches was lower than that of the more mature.
