Abstract:
Several physical properties as physical characteristics, mechanical, hydrodynamic and nutritional properties of two apple varieties (Redspar and Delbarstival), were determined and compared using Duncan`s multiple ranges test. Physical characteristics such as: average fruit length, width, thickness, the geometric, arithmetic and equivalent mean diameter, projected area, surface area, sphericity index, aspect ratio, fruit mass, volume, true density and moisture content, were determined for both varieties. The coefficient of static friction on plastic, plywood and galvanized iron, flesh firmness, failure stress, modulus of elasticity were found. The terminal velocity, coming up time, bouncy and drag forces, as hydrodynamic properties and total dry matter, total soluble solid, pH and titratable acidity, as nutritional properties, were determined. It was concluded that most of properties of two apple varieties was statistically different at the one percent probability level.
