Abstract

Mechanical damage to fruits results from a combination of fruit properties and of damage inflicting effects by the handling equipment. Treatments were applied to fruits which affect mechanical damage susceptibility: precooling for stone fruits and degreening to citrus fruits. Laboratory tests (compression, impact, tumbling, abrasion) and field tests (damage in the handling lines) were applied to (3) peach, (2) apricot, (2) orange and (1) lemon varieties. Hydroor-air-cooling influence positively peach and apricot firmness and cause a significant reduction in: number of bruised fruits, and size of visible bruise, when combined with a low level of loading during handling. Degreening also affects the resistance of citrus fruits to handling, when compared to green fruits.
