Fruit Quality and its Biological Basis

1st Edition

Michael Knee
December 13, 2001

Fruit technology draws on biology and engineering to maintain quality during storage, distribution, and marketing. Fruit Quality and Its Biological Basis focuses on the biological processes that determine appearance, texture, taste, nutritional value, and flavor of fleshy fruits. It then presents...

Leaf Development and Canopy Growth
