Start date

End date

Objective
Objective 1. Characterize fundamental aspects of haskap postharvest fruit physiology, including respiration, ethylene production, and fruit transpiration coefficients (for water loss).Objective 2. Define and use measures of postharvest quality for haskaps to determine average duration of fresh market potential for several cultivars.Objective 3. Determine impact of an ethylene receptor blocking treatment (1-MCP) on saskatoon fresh market storage potentialObjective 4. Compare haskap cultivar suitability for mechanical harvest (fruit dimensions, ripening evenness, and responsiveness to "stop-drop" treatments)
