Key Fruit Technology Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Fruit and Vegetable Quality
edited by Robert L. Shewfelt and Bernhard Brückner

  • A tightly-organized, fully integrated reference on fruit and vegetable quality
  • Presents options for improving postharvest handling to enhance quality
  • Provides a model for integrating research efforts to improve quality
  • A unique interdisciplinary approach
Fruit and Vegetable Quality: An Integrated View is designed for anyone involved in management, production, handling, distribution or processing of fruits and vegetables. It provides concise descriptions of important issues facing postharvest handlers, roadmaps to the literature in specific fields, assessments of current knowledge and research needs, and specific examples of product-based research. It provides a guide to the dynamic developments in integrating fruit and vegetable quality projects.

Fruit and Vegetable Quality: An Integrated View presents 14 unique perspectives in the topic, culminating in two chapters that seek a common ground for bringing together these perspectives into a unified language that permits a more integrated approach to fruit and vegetable research and postharvest handling.

The book is organized into four sections. Section I presents contemporary issues in fruit and vegetable quality. Section II focuses on properties of fruits and vegetables. Section III addresses the definition and principles of quality and its measurement. Section IV provides a basis for integrating quality across the scientific disciplines.
