particularly susceptible to bruising, especially during mechanical harvesting, which can lead to the development of rot in storage. For this reason, much of the crop in some production areas, including Prince Edward Island, is hand-harvested. During the

tolerance is made up of two components: wear and compaction (soil surface disruption) ( Beard, 1973 ). Wear stress includes tissue tearing, tissue bruising, and tissue removal resulting from horizontal forces, whereas surface soil disruption includes soil

cultivars are not well known by other American consumers ( Bruhn et al., 1991 ). Many white-fleshed peaches are highly susceptible to bruising and have a low acid content ( Brooks and Olmo, 1972 and 1997 ; Crisosto et al., 2001 ; Okie, 1998 ; Whealy and
