Most varieties were observed to lose firmness after storage at 10 deg C, but not at 3 deg C. The ground colour changes. This gradual change toward uniform characteristics during the storage period can mask significant differences in gustatory quality. The sugar content changed very little or not at all. Acidity, highly variable from one variety to the next, remained high in Tom Cot, and dropped sharply in the Goldrich variety.
