Abstract: Quality losses of fresh market fruit are often related to mechanical damages that occur from harvest thru final consumer. Those damages normally occur when fruits drop from high heights or collide against not protected surfaces or against other fruits. The main goal of this work was to evaluate in laboratory for impact magnitude and tomato quality different surfaces in three drop heights. For measuring impact magnitude it was used the instrumented sphere and for tomato quality the evaluation was based on internal bruising. Fruit drop tests were done using three protective surfaces that showed different levels of maximum acceleration combined with three different heights. It was concluded that the use of determined protective surfaces rubber plate, under low drop high can decrease internal bruising incidence and impact magnitude on packing lines.
