Abstract:

Surface area of fruits and vegetable are often estimated by assuming that they resemble a geometrical shape from which surface area can be mathematically calculated. A composite geometrical shape nearing to obovate shape was presumed for papaya fruit cultivars Red Lady and its geometrical shape was correlated with actual surface area (estimated by measuring the area of aluminium foil required to cover the fruit surface- wrapping and scanning method). Geometrical surface area was found to be more than 95 accurate when compared to wrapping and scanning method.


Keywords: Papaya, surface area, geometrical shape, obovate
