Apple fruits are subjected to chemical analysis for their mineral element content and to examination for disorders such as bitter pit, breakdown, scald and fungal rots. The relationships among bitter pit incidence, calcium deficiency and mean fruit weight per tree is illustrated by using data obtained on Jonathan apples from potted trees.
