Dr. Cheryll Reitmeier of the ISU Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition led a 2-year (1997-1998) evaluation of sensory and objective characteristics of the cultivars from the scab-resistant trial. Sensory characteristics are opinions about the appearance, color, texture, and taste of apples. Objective characteristics are measured traits of the fruit such as hardness, soluble solids (a measure of sugar content), pH, and acidity.
