Wageningen University's Fresh on Demand project is developing tools to help improve fruit quality, including non-destructive methods to measure the flavor of tomatoes. This research will help the whole fresh supply chain monitor and select for high-quality fruits. The tools can also be used to select better tasting varieties in breeding programs.
In this video (with English subtitles), see how Rick de Jong and his team work with taste panels and with various non-destructive methods.
