Vitazyme on Apples – 2003, North America

This Vitazyme apple test in New York showed that, while not increasing yield, the product
performed some valuable quality functions:
1. The fruit less than 2.5 inches in diameter were decreased.
2. Fruit firmness was increased by 0.34 psi.
3. Fruit brix was elevated by 0.31 point.
These results indicated that Vitazyme can improve the crispness and sweetness of apples, and also help
reduce the number of small apples for a variety like Empire than has a problem with sizing.
