A method of determining the ripeness of avocados


, : A method of determining the ripeness of avocados. Information Bulletin, Citrus and Subtropical Fruit Research Institute (90): 15-18

A simple apparatus for measuring the fruit firmness of avocados is described. The firmness of fruits on the tree remained constant throughout the season, but that of picked fruits held at room temperature declined rapidly (indicating ripening), the ripening period being up to 10 days less in later-picked fruits. Fruits kept at 5.5 deg C ripened slowly.

Using restriction landmark genomic scanning and pyrosequencing, we found that the...
