Abstract

One of the major causes of fruit loss, and reduced quality with Geraldton tomatoes, is due to injuries suffered during handling. It is considered that the greatest immediate improvement in tomato quality, may be obtained by exercising greater care during the harvesting, grading and packing of the fruit.
