They concluded that because of high agreement between these devices, the GSA being a non-contact method may be an alternative to US pachymeter for measurement of CCT.
The fruit length (FL), width (FW), and thickness (FT) were assessed using a digital pachymeter (Starret 799).
Length and diameter of the fruits were measured using a 150mm digital pachymeter (Kingtools, SP, Brazil) and a pulp/pit ratio (P/P) was performed using a semi analytical balance AUX220 (Shimadzu, SP, Brazil).
An evaluation was performed 10 days after the beginning of the experiment and measured plant height (mm) from base to apex and root length (mm) from base to apex of the meristematic root system using a digital pachymeter (Rizzi et al.
The diameter (mm) of the equatorial section of fruits was measured with a pachymeter, randomly in the plants, and when fruits were in the desired phase, thinners were applied.
