Abstract

High speed reflected light spectrophotometry was used to determine an optimum maturity distribution of mechanically harvested clingstone peaches (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) for processing. Succinic acid-2,2-dimethylhydrazide (SADH) applied at pit-hardening, advanced the optimum harvest date from 3 to 5 days and increased the yield of processable fruit from 62% for the control trees to 80% for the treated trees.
