Rob Blakey , David Rudell ,

The aim of this publications is to rank apple storage rooms for the risk of superficial scald development by quantifying the conjugated trienols (oxidation product that causes scald symptoms) in the peel of a representative sample of fruit to aid in decision making during cold storage of apples. This assay could have benefits for organic fruit – where scald-mitigating treatments are limited – and for conventional fruit where the effectiveness of scald-mitigating treatments can be validated and corrective actions taken.
