Chemical investigations on bitter pit of apples. IV. The calcium content of skin and flesh of apples in relation to bitter pit



Chemical investigations on bitter pit of apples. IV. The calcium content of skin and flesh of apples in relation to bitter pit



New Zealand Jour Agric Res 6(1/2): 43-46



The skin of apples has been found to contain about 4 times as much calcium as the underlying flesh, on the dry-weight basis. The calcium-rich area consists of a layer of epidermal and underlying collenchyma cells. Healthy and pitted fruits from a number of orchards showed a consistent relation between pitting and low calcium level in the skin and flesh.
