typical commercial harvest, at which the time of harvest was determined based on optimum juice composition of the following parameters: total soluble solids (TSS) (20 to 21 °Brix), pH (3.1 to 3.2), and titratable acidity (TA) (9 to 10 g·L −1 ); 2) fall

equator of fruit, number of seeds per fruit, and total soluble solids (TSS) were measured. Fruit index representing fruit shape was obtained by dividing fruit length by width. Seeds were classified as viable (black), aborted (brown), and vestigial (light

berry samples were collected weekly to monitor soluble solids accumulation by the fruits. Samples consisted of ≈100 berries collected from the top, middle, and bottom of ≈33 randomly selected clusters. Berries were homogenized in a blender, their juice
