  4. Influence of harvest maturity on quality of cold stored <em>Vitis vinifera</em> L. cv. ‘Thompson Seedless’ and ‘Red Globe’ table grapes, with special reference to berry split

    Influence of harvest maturity on quality of cold stored <em>Vitis vinifera</em> L. cv. ‘Thompson Seedless’ and ‘Red Globe’ table grapes, with special reference to berry split

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Effect of harvest maturity on quality of Thompson Seedless' and ‘Red Globe’ table grapes after cold storage at −0.5°C and a subsequent shelf life was investigated. Berry split decreased significantly for grapes harvested at more advanced maturities. By harvesting ‘Thompson...
