SEMENSATO, LEANDRA REGINA  and  PEREIRA, ALONSO SALUSTIANO. Fruit characteristics of acerola genotypes grown at high altitude. Pesq. agropec. bras. [online]. 2000, vol.35, n.12, pp.2529-2536. ISSN 0100-204X.

The purpose of this work was to evaluate the physical, physical-chemical and chemical characteristics of fruits from nine genotypes of acerola (Malpighia sp.) growing in Anápolis, GO, Brazil, located at 1,000 m above sea level. Data showed that the production of fruits with high content of vitamin C (above 1,000 mg/100 mL of juice) is viable in that region. However, it was found a considerable variability among the genotypes studied, in which genotypes numbered 2, 6, 3, 1 and 7 stood out, fulfilling the main industrial requirements.
