Fruit Quality and Its Biological Basis by Michael Knee

By Michael Knee

Fruit expertise attracts on biology and engineering to take care of caliber in the course of garage, distribution, and advertising. Fruit caliber and Its organic foundation makes a speciality of the organic tactics that verify visual appeal, texture, flavor, dietary worth, and style of fleshy end result. It then provides methods in which those organic methods might be manipulated to maximise caliber for the patron.

1998). High calcium/magnesium and calcium/potassium ratios can be important for postharvest quality and the drop in calcium concentration during the later stages of development increases the risk of calcium-related storage disorders. A change in mineral ratios can be seen if fruit of different sizes but of the same maturity are analysed. In apple fruit, calcium concentrations usually decline with increasing fruit size, whereas potassium and magnesium concentrations may be constant, or increase (Ferguson and Watkins, 1992).
