Abstract

Woolliness, a negative attribute of sensory texture, is characterised by the lack of juiciness without variation of the tissue water content an incapacity of ripening although there is external ripe appearance. In this study, peaches cv Springcrest (early and soft flesh peaches) and Miraflores (late and hard flesh peaches) corresponding to three different maturity stages at harvest, stored 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks at 1 and 5°C have been tested by instrumental and sensory means. A Instrumental classification of woolliness has been compared to the sensory assessment. For Springcrest peaches the sensory results match with those found for the instrumental procedure. In this case , Woolliness appears after 2 weeks of storage at 5°C, changing abruptly from crispy to woolly. Miraflores peaches did not develop woolliness during storage. After comparing with sensory results, it is shown that a common instrumental scale may be appropriate to classify for woolliness all peach varieties.
