Survey of Sensing Methods for Detection of Freeze Damage in Oranges

The goal of this project is to develop and test a field method for using an ethanol sensor to measure whether a sample of oranges contains a threshold level of freeze-damaged fruit. The citrus industry is seeking an objective alternative to the manual inspection method used by CDFA inspectors to determine freeze damage in navel oranges.
