PIVA, Cesar Rosso; LOPEZ GARCIA, José Luiz and MORGAN, Wyn. Evaluation of the acceptability level for the Italy, Napoleon and Redglobe varieties on the spanish market. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2008, vol.30, n.2, pp.361-364. ISSN 0100-2945. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452008000200016.
Aiming to evaluate the acceptability level of three late varieties of table grape, the Unity of Comercialization and Agricultural Divulgation from the Department of Economy and Agricultural Social Science (E.T.S.I. Agrónomos), from the Politecnical University of Madri, accomplished this study in July 1999. The sensorial analysis was applied for the evaluation of the acceptability level of three varieties of table grape: Italy, Redglobe and Napoleon. This analysis attempted to know the possible differences of sensorial character among the varieties. In the Spanish orchards, these varieties reached the harvest ripening in the same period. The flavor, followed by the succulence, were the determinant elements in the process of accepting the grape.
