Both Cacl2 and Nutrical (a trihydroxyglutarate chelate) were foliarly applied at rates of 1.8 and 5.5 Cacl2/ha/season and 1.5 and 4.5 l/ha/season, respectively. Applications were made starting at shuck split and repeated at 2 week intervals until harvest. Neither calcium treatment had an effect on fruit size and size distribution. Fruit size was directly related to crop load. Calcium chloride application had the most pronounced effect on increasing the red over-color of `Cresthaven' peaches with Nutrical intermediate compared to the control. The high rate of Nutrical increased flesh calcium levels at harvest by 75-100 PPM. Instron Texture Profile Analysis indicated that any calcium treatment significantly increased the hardness of the peach. Nutrical at 4.5 l/ha/season improved hardness 2-fold compared to the controls. The improved hardness was maintained throughout the 6 week storage period.

Selected cultivars of several fruit species were exposed to 0.25% or 0.02% O2 at 0, 5, or 10C for short durations to investigate the potential of these treatments as quarantine procedures for postharvest insect control. Beneficial effects of such low O2 treatments included inhibition or delay of ripening processes as indicated by reduction in respiration and ethylene production rates, retardation of skin color changes and flesh softening, and maintenance of titratable acidity. While appearance was not adversely influenced by the short-term low O2 treatments, the development of alcoholic off-flavor was the most important detrimental effect, which limited the tolerance of fresh fruits to low-O2 atmospheres. Ethanol content and flavor score of the fruits had a logarithmic relationship. The threshold ethanol concentration associated with off-flavor detection (EO) increased with SSC of the commodity at the ripe stage, and it could be estimated using the following formula (Log EO)/SSC = 0.228. Using SSC of ripe fruits and average ethanol accumulation rate per day (V) from each low O2 treatment, the tolerance limit (Tl) of fruits to low O atmospheres could be predicted as follows: Tl = EO/E = 1 00.228 SSC2/V.E
