Adams, R.H. (1969) Post-harvest treatments and bitter pit of Granny Smith Apples. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 26 (3). pp. 433-438.



A comparison is made of the effects of post-harvest dips of calcium nitrate, calcium chloride and a number of other materials on the incidence of bitter pit in cool-stored Granny Smith apples. The incidence of bitter pit was considerably higher in fruit from young trees than in fruit from old trees irrespective of treatment.
