Vitazyme on Apples – 2013-Orondo, Washington
This apple study, comparing three applications of Vitazyme on Ambrosia organic apples with no applications, revealed that this product improved the quality of the fruit significantly. Not only were fruit size (+6%), weight (+16%), pressure (+1%), and Brix (+7%, or 0.8 percentage-point) improved, but the fruit grade was moved toward better coloration, such that 40% of the Vitazyme treated apples received the Premium grade, compared to only 19% of the untreated apples. Had yields been determined, the treated apples would have yielded considerably better than the control apples, and given a much higher income per acre. The value of the Vitazyme program for organic apples in Washington is thus revealed.
