New Avocado ripeness meter set for December release

Felix Instruments’ new Avocado Quality Meter F-751 soon will be available to post-harvest communities.

The ripeness meter, available through QA Supplies, is an avocado-only version of the F-750 Produce Quality Meter. The F-751 is set for release on Dec. 5, 2018.

“This instrument will provide ripeness data and non-destructive accurate maturity readings from anywhere the avocado is,” said Steve Page, General Manager at QA Supplies.

With the push of a button, this instrument can accurately predict dry-matter straight out of the box. Data is then transferred seamlessly to a PC via Wi-Fi for easy analysis and sharing.

The Avocado Quality Meter also comes with the ability to use Fruit Maps, a free interactive harvest map application co-created by Felix Instruments and Central Queensland University. This feature makes it possible to monitor your orchards in real time from anywhere in the world.
