Citrus fruits harvested by a commercial source will be processed into juice and provided for analysis. Juice samples will be prepared for analysis by H1-NMR and analyzed. Initial data analysis and the subsequent statistical analysis will be conducted at the UC Davis in conjunction with the ARS Scientists at the Western Regional Research Center, Albany, CA. Additional samples for analysis may be obtained from commercial citrus growers or from citrus variety collections. It is expected that the total number of samples to analyze will range from 100 to 150 samples.
