The technician should do two measurements at the opposite sides of each fruit, e.g., at the sun-side and the shadow-side. The point of measurement should be plain and without any fault on the peel. With this instrument, the user can see the yielding of the fruit under a certain and constant press power as well as a defined measuring distance. The indicated measured value is a quotient. For this reason it is absolutely important that the user always note the anvil employed for the firmness test. The anvil does not penetrate the peel of the fruit.
