Flesh bruising is a major postharvest concern of the avocado industry. As much as ~ 80% of fruit on retail display can have some degree of internal quality issues, mainly flesh bruising. HIA Limited Project AV10019 was commissioned with the objective of identifying critical points in the supply chain where events that lead to flesh bruising happen. Also, the incidence of skin spotting at different stages of the supply chain was evaluated with a view to scope the need for future research on this defect. The target audience of this project is commercial producers, traders and research organisations.
