Prolongar la vida poscosecha de la fruta fresca

Tim Motis y Stacy Swartz

Excerpto:

Aprenda a reconocer los estados de maduración de la fruta que cultiva. Las pruebas de madurez pueden clasificarse como destructivas o no destructivas. Las pruebas destructivas son aquellas que dañan o destruyen la fruta que se está evaluando. Un ejemplo de prueba destructiva es el color de la pulpa, porque uno tiene que cortar la fruta para determinar el color de la pulpa en su interior. Los indicadores visuales como el tamaño de la fruta, la forma y el color de la cáscara son no destructivos. No es necesario que uno destruya un tomate para ver un cambio de verde a rojo. No hay ninguna prueba que funcione bien para todas las especies frutales. Averigüe qué pruebas son las más confiables para determinar la madurez de la fruta del cultivo o cultivos  con los que está trabajando. De ellas, seleccione una o dos que pueda implementar en su contexto.
