Schoorl, D. (1973) Tight-fill tomato packaging studies. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 30 (2). pp. 137-144.



Four seconds of vibration was found adequate for settling tomatoes in a tight-fill package. Vibration settling for longer than 6 sec bruised coloured tomatoes. Tomatoes in tight-fill packages carried as well as in loose-fill packages. The reduction in fruit movement with the tight-fill packages was not important in reducing fruit bruising under the transport conditions tried. The tight-fill package held 25% more fruit than the loose-fill package, and a good full
appearance of the package was obtained.
