Abstract

Some laboratory tests consisting on quasi-static compression and puncture forces carried out on twelve varieties of apricot during 1990 and 1991 were effective in sorting them. These mechanical properties show a high correlation w i th the ethylene production rate per fruit, so allowing to discriminate between ripeness levels at harvest. In this study it is also demonstrated that puncture seems to be the less variable mechanical test. The values (N/mm) obtained with it show a highly significant correlation with compression resistance and with quasi-static compression damage of the fruits.
