The claim that will be evaluated is the increase in shelf-life.
The tests will be conducted both in the field and in cold storage.
In the field, the degree Brix, the bunch weight and the hardness will be evaluated. In addition, the total acidity will be analyzed.
In storage, instead, the weight, the drying/desiccation of the rachis and the hardness will all be evaluated at 0, 15, 30 and 45 days.
