Abstract

The application of reflectance spectroscopy for citrus fruit quality monitoring is discussed. The reflectance measurements were performed on orange, mandarin, and grapefruit fruit surface in the spectral range from 385 nm to 1100 nm with the Perkin Elmer spectrometer equipped with the integrating sphere. The changes observed in reflectance spectra of oranges due to fruit maturation and post-harvest storage mainly are due to the chlorophyll loss. The difference in reflectance spectra for healthy orange fruits and fruit infested by fungi are shown. The potential of quantitative in vivo measurements of plant pigments like chlorophylls, carotenoids, and anthocyanins, in citrus fruit peel is discussed.
