    Abstract Determining the harvest time is a difficult decision for the fruit grower. The objective of this paper was to study the changes of some variables involved in the ripening of the fruit to determine the adequate harvest time. This would help to guarantee high-quality fruits in “Flavorcrest/Nemared” peach trees. Plants were set to the free palmette system at 4.5 x 3 m with a drip irrigation system. Harvesting was complete in three trees at three dates. Fruit weight, height and diameter, flesh firmness, total soluble solids and acidity were evaluated at harvesting and after three days at room temperature (25… More >
