ABSTRACT
The authors developed a sorting line for sizing and sorting of apples. Different size apples were taken from storage and were sorted to improve fruit quality. Apples from the outlets of sorter were carefully analysed in terms of size, weight and colour to assign a fruit quality index. The taste of fruit and some nutritional values (reducing sugar, L-ascorbic acid) were determined to achieve a final fruit quality index.
