Relationship Between SSC/TA Ratio and Acceptability of Navel Orange

During the second year of this project, we continued the work initiated last year. This project uses the sensory panel volunteers at the UC Kearney Ag Center to evaluate early season navel oranges with the intent to develop a database of the relationship between SSC/TA ratio, volatiles, and acceptability of navel orange fruit. Additionally, during this year we explored the relationship between fruit handling practices, waxes and fruit acceptability following storage.
