EVALUATING POSTHARVEST INJURY TO FRESH MARKET TOMATOES

Components of a single postharvest handling system (from harvest through the packinghouse) for fresh tomatoes are evaluated in terms of injuries which lead to losses of tomatoes. Immediate evidence, as well as delayed evidence of injury is included in the evaluation. A flow diagram and description of the system are provided with suspect components labeled. Suggestions for improving these components are given based on the findings of the study.
