Tests were conducted during the 1973 and 1974 seasons to evaluate possible beneficial and detrimental effects of AT on postharvest handling of the cherry fruit. Included in these postharvest evaluations were effects of the AT spray on water loss from the fruit, subsequent fruit shrivel and stem browning, changes in respiratory pattern of the fruit, appearance, and any unusual deterioration pattern.
