Campbell, Sean Michael, and Charles A Sims. 2020. “Small-to-Medium-Scale Sensory Evaluation of Horticultural Crops—Sensory Attributes: ENH1315/EP579, 3/2020”. EDIS 2020 (2). Gainesville, FL.


Given the economic impact associated with the value and acceptability of horticultural crops, sensory evaluation is commonly employed in research, product development and quality control, with very specific parameters outlined for its proper execution. Once the evaluation has been performed, the resulting data can be used to make sound decisions about crop quality and marketability, ultimately determining the overall value. This publication is the first in a series designed to assist producers in the small to medium-sized sensory evaluation of their horticultural crops, outlining the sensory attributes essential to sensory evaluation.
