Modeling of Firmness in Carrot (CV. Nantes) Based on Carrot Water Content
There are many cases in which it is desirable to determine relationships among some fruit quality characteristics. For example, fruit firmness (FIR) are often determined using laborious and time consuming laboratory tests, but it may be more suitable and economical to develop a method which uses an easily available characteristic. In this study, one linear regression model for predicting FIR of Nantes carrot based on carrot water content (WC) was suggested. The statistical results of the study indicated that in order to predict FIR of carrot based on WC the linear regression model FIR = - 1665 + 55.5 WC with R2 = 0.84 can be recommended.
