SENSORY EVALUATION OF FRUIT OF SOME ORGANICALLY GROWN SCAB-RESISTANT APPLE CULTIVARS
Fruit quality of five scab-resistant apple cultivars (Angold, Ecolette, Goldrush, Sir Prize and Topaz) from organic growing conditions were tested. To assess external and internal fruit quality, the following was investigated: (I) standard parameters (fruit weight, firmness, soluble solids, malic acid) and (II) sensorial quality by panel tests (fruit size, shape and colour; firmness, crispness, juiciness, sweet/acid taste, aroma and overall flavour). Large differences in sensory scores for particular quality attributes were found between cultivars. The hedonic scores showed that the highest preference was for Goldrush and the lowest for Topaz.
