Non-Destructive Measurements of Total Soluble Solids and Dry Matter Content in Apple (Malus spp.)
20 December 2016
Orchard harvest can be timed with peak DM content to maximize quality in apples. Sugar content is regularly measured in apples throughout development and storage. Using traditional methodology, TSS and DM content measurements are destructive and time-consuming. To determine effectiveness and viability of the F-750 Produce Quality Meter for non-destructive measurements of TSS and DM in apples, a modeling study was conducted on 40 apple cheeks.
