Results of tests showed that tomatoes which were re-compressed were softer than tomatoes tested only once. Therefore it was concluded that when absolute data are required it may be necessary to test a replicate set of tomatoes at each time of testing||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||An Foras Talúntais||Keywords:||Shelf life tests;Modified shear press;Firmness value||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
