Abstract: In shelf-life tests when fruit firmness is measured by compressing the fruit, it may be desirable to re-compress the same fruit a number of times to keep the size of the experiment to a practicable scale. 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
