Nondestructive estimates of fruit volume are used for yield prediction. They are also used to study the relationship between fruit expansion rate and susceptibility to diseases or physiological disorders such as fruit cracking. A model relating bell pep- per (Capsicum annuum) fruit diameter and length to its volume was derived using the equation of the volume of a sphere as the starting point. The model has the following formula: VF = KD 2 L//6, where VF is fruit volume, K is the shape factor… CONTINUE READING
