‘Honeycrisp’ apples are susceptible to bitter pit, a physiological disorder that impacts peel and adjacent cortex tissue. ‘Honeycrisp’ is also susceptible to chilling injury (CI) that can be prevented by holding fruit at 10 to 20 °C after harvest for up to 7 days. This temperature conditioning period reduces CI risk but can enhance bitter pit devel...

Watercore (WC) is a physiological disorder related to carbohydrate metabolism in apple fruit. Late season WC typically develops as ‘Fuji’ fruit mature on the tree. WC affected fruit develop water-soaked tissue around the vascular bundles and/or fruit core when the intercellular spaces are filled with fluid. While mild symptoms dissipate in storage,...
