Abstract

An infrared CO2 analyzer system was used as a nondestructive and rapid means of monitoring the CO2 evolution of blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum L.), sweet cherries (Prunus avium L.), and tart cherries (P. cerasus L.). An increase in the CO2 evolution of blueberries and cherries caused by impact-induced bruising was correlated with percent product decay. This technique may be useful in evaluating bruise damage caused by harvesting and handling systems.
