To identify components of flavor and nutrition in tangerine fruit.
Perform sensory evaluation and analyze flavor volatiles, carotenoids and other nutritional components from new tangerine hybrid fruit by using gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-MS), GC and olfactometry (GC-O) and high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). Identify changes in volatile and carotenoid composition among selected hybrids, harvest time and year.
