Varietal differences in firmness and placental breakdown of tomatoes



Varietal differences in firmness and placental breakdown of tomatoes



Proceedings Florida State Hort Society 75: 304-307



Four varieties and a breeding line were evaluated for firmness and placental breakdown in the spring and fall of 1961. The Marion variety was found to be softer and Step 390 firmer than Indian River, Manapal and Homestead. Marion had more and Step 390 less placental breakdown than the other varieties. The breakdown was found even when no pressure was applied (as in the firmness determinations) and increased during the period from 6 to 15 days after turning. No correlation was found between firmness and the breakdown.
