  • Crouch, E. M.   Holcroft, D. M.   Huysamer, M. (International Society for Horticultural Science -- ISHS, 2005-04)
    ‘Forelle’ (Pyrus communis), a late season blushed pear cultivar grown in South Africa, requires a minimum of 12-weeks cold storage (-0.5 °C) to ripen evenly. Mealiness, a dry texture disorder, may develop at this time. ...
  • Caleb, Oluwafemi James   Mahajan, Pramod V.   Opara, Umezuruike Linus   Witthuhn, Corli R. (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-03)
    Abstract: Understanding the effect of time and temperature on the respiration rate (RR) of fresh-cut produce, towards the design of a suitable modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) system, requires an adequate mathematical ...
  • Caleb, Oluwafemi James   Mahajan, Pramod V.   Opara, Umezuruike Linus   Witthuhn, Corli R. (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    The design of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) for fresh and fresh-cut fruit requires adequate prediction of respiration rates (RRs). A study was conducted to determine the influences of storage temperature (5, 10 and ...
  • Caleb, Oluwafemi James   Opara, Umezuruike Linus   Witthuhn, Corli R. (Springer Verlag, 2011-02)
    Ongoing global drive for a healthier diet has led to a rise in demand for convenient and fresh food produce, with high nutritional value and free of additives. Minimally fresh processed fruits and vegetables, satisfies ...
  • Stassen, P. J. C.   North, M. S. (International Society for Horticultural Science -- ISHS, 2005-04)
    Accurate water and fertilizer management are essential in modern high intensity orchard systems to enable the manipulation of both reproductive and vegetative development. Studies have been conducted to establish the ...
  • Sagredo, K.   Cooper, T. (Acta HorticulturaeInternational Society for Horticultural Science -- ISHS, 2005-04)
    Pear production is concentrated in the central zone of the country (32º-36°33’ S), under temperate climatic conditions. Pear is the fifth largest fruit crop in the Chilean export basket, representing 5% of the planted ...
  • Addison, P. (Acta Horticulturae, 2005-04)
    The grain chinch bug (GCB) M. diplopterus is endemic to the Western Cape and as such is classified as a quarantine pest. The aim of this project was to evaluate post-harvest methods of control to ensure that packed fruit ...
  • Cronje, P. J. R.   Crouch, E. M.   Huysamer, M. (Acta Horticulturae, 2005-06)
    Abscission is an active developmental process occurring at the abscission zone of the fruit peduncle. The target cells in the abscission zone, which are involved in the process of separation, are located in the separation ...
  • Magwaza, Lembe S.   Opara, Umezuruike Linus   Terry, Leon A.   Landahl, Sandra   Cronje, Paul J.   Nieuwoudt, Helene   Mouazen, Abdul Mounem   Saeys, Wouter   Nicolai, Bart M. (Elsevier, 2012-12)
    The use of diffuse reflectance visible and near infrared (Vis/NIR) spectroscopy was explored as a nondestructive technique to predict ‘Nules Clementine’ mandarin fruit susceptibility to rind breakdown (RBD) disorder by ...
  • Steyn, W. J.   Wand, S. J. E.   Holcroft, D. M.   Jacobs, G. (International Society for Horticultural Science -- ISHS, 2005-04)
  • Reynolds, L. P.   Jacobs, G.   Theron, K. I. (International Society for Horticultural Science -- ISHS, 2005-04)
    For consistent yields in pear fruit production, knowledge of the development of the reproductive bud is required. The aim of this study was to gain more insight into the development of the primordial bourse shoot. The ...
  • Ngcobo, Mduduzi E. K.   Delele, Mulugeta A.   Opara, Umezuruike Linus   Zietsman, Cobus J.   Meyer, Chris J. (Elsevier, 2012-03)
    Postharvest handling of table grape is commonly carried out using multi-scale packages comprised of the main container, inner liner film and pouches holding individual bunch of berries. Total pressure drop through different ...
  • Ferrandi, C. H.   Van Der Merwe, P. W.   Huysamer, M. (Acta Horticulturae, 2005-04)
    In the context of global production, Africa as a continent is a very small producer of Pyrus communis pears, with roughly 3% of global hectares and production. South Africa produces 56% of Africa’s total crop, followed by ...
  • Punt, H.   Huysamer, M. (International Society for Horticultural Science -- ISHS, 2005-07)
    The South African plum industry is an important supplier of fresh fruit to the northern hemisphere from December to April. Extensive use is made of a dual- temperature shipping regime, which is a form of intermittent ...
  • Ambaw, A.   Delele, M. A.   Defraeye, T.   Ho, Q. T.   Opara, Umezuruike Linus   Nicolai, B. M.   Verboven, P. (Elsevier, 2012)
    There has long been an interest on the use of mathematical models for optimization of post-harvest refrigeration systems operation and design. These mathematical models are applied to predict the biophysical phenomena ...
  • Wand, S. J. E.   Steyn, W. J.   Holcroft, D. M.   Mdluli, M. J.   Van Den Dool, K.   Jacobs, G. (International Society for Horticultural Science -- ISHS, 2005-04)
    In Pyrus communis ‘Rosemarie’, a potentially lucrative blushed pear cultivar, poor fruit colour has been ascribed to pre-harvest red colour loss during periods of high temperature. High temperatures combined with high ...
