Abstract

Fruit turgidity and firmness have shown to influence impact bruise susceptibility in apples and pears. Analysis of the impact response showed that stresses in the tissues are higher in turgid fruits, so they are more susceptible to bruising. A physical parameter, deformation at skin puncture, was able to detect fruit turgidity changes and showed to be related to bruise susceptibility.
