Technical Abstract: Small fruits, such as strawberries and bleberries, are rich in photonutrients and regarded to have high human health-functional bioactivities. In this Workshop, 1) the horticultural and environmental factors affecting antioxidant levels in small fruits, 2) fruit volatiles as related to postharvest shelf life and quality, 3) changes in non- volatile fruit constituents, and 4) olfactometric analyses and consumer perception of these value-added fruit constituents will be discussed. In addition, novel detection methods for fruit-and microbial-derived aromas to address the food safety issues will be discussed.
