Physicochemical characteristics (including peel/pulp firmness, peel color, soluble sugars, starch, titratable acidity and moisture content) were determined in two cultivars of banana (Musa spp. 'Williams' and 'Grande naine'). The bananas were cultivated in Ecuador under two production systems; low chemical production systems (LCPS) and conventional production system (CPS). The one -year evaluation period was marked by changes in the weather pattern, thereby enabling us to evaluate the effects… CONTINUE READING
