Soluble solids content is an important element of strawberry fruit quality. Approximately 80% to 90% of the SSC consists of sugars ( Perkins-Veazie, 1995 ), and high levels have frequently been associated with favorable sensory ratings in taste

soluble solids content (TSS) stands out because the higher the TSS, the sweeter fruit flavor, and the higher °Brix genotypes are preferred by consumers ( Mitchell et al., 2019 ). In addition, to require the addition of less sugar during processing, fruit

Abstract

The relationship of soluble solids content (SSC) to sensory quality of several cultivars of muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) grown in Maryland or California was studied during 3 growing seasons (1970-1972). SSC above 8% was not always associated with high sweetness, flavor, or acceptability. SSC and external color were not highly correlated. Until the relation between SSC and sensory quality has been more thoroughly studied for today’s cultivars, sensory tests should be an integral part of all research involving quality of cantaloupes.

Abstract

Demand for dehydrated onions, Allium cepa L., is becoming considerable in world markets. Any changes in dry matter, total soluble solids, or pungency of onions may affect quality of the dehydrated product. Several studies have been made on the influence of herbicides on weed control and onion yield (2, 4, 5) but little has been reported on the effects of herbicides on quality characteristics. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of chlorbromuron (N'-(4-bromo-3-chlo-rophenyl)-N-methoxy-N-methylurea), chloroxuron (N’-4-(4-chlorophenoxy) phenyl-N,N-dimethylurea), propachlor (2-chloro-N-isopropylacetanilide), CP-50144 (2-chloro-2′,6′-diethyl-N-(methoxymethyl) acentilide), Sindone 0263 (1, 1-dimethyl-4,6-diisopropyl-5-indanylethylketone + 7-indanylisomer), propanil (3’, 4′-dichloropropionanilide), and prometryne (2,4-bis(iso-propylamino)-6-(methylthio)-s-triazine) on dry matter content, total soluble solids, and pungency of onions.

Abstract

The soluble solids content of ripe fruit of tomato (Lycopersicon esculeutum mill.) is positively associated with starch content early in fruit development. When 14C-sucrose or 14C-glucose were injected, the young fruits of the breeding line LA 1563 contained greater amounts of 14C in starch than those of the cultivars ‘UC 82B’. This, and the larger pool of hexoses in young fruits of ‘UC 82B’, implies that difference in starch synthesis is a primary factor affecting starch levels. The differences between 2 genotypes for fruit respiration and their ability to take up sucrose from an agar medium suggest that starch accumulation is a result of greater sink activity.
