evaluation, fruit were weighed and fruit color was visually ranked on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 = 20% red, progressively to 5 = 100% red. Soluble solids concentration was measured by a temperature-compensated refractometer (Atago N1, Tokyo, Japan). Fruit

instance, fruit color and storage potential may be improved by summer pruning of the trees and covering the orchard ground with reflective materials ( Blanke, 2008 ; Funke and Blanke, 2005 ; Tahir et al., 2005 ). Both production practices provide a better

fruit color in apples, has been studied by various researchers, with both consistent and contradictory results. Early spring trunk girdling increased fruit set and flower bud formation and reduced vegetative growth on apple trees ( Autio and Greene, 1994
