Firmness Testers

Fruit Firmness testing is used worldwide as a measure of ripeness/maturity of many types of fruit, including apples, pears, mangoes, avocados and more.

Our handheld FT Series penetrometers and motorized, automatic Fruit Texture Analyzer (FTA) are both industry standards for quick, easy and accurate firmness testing.  For the FT Series, we also offer a Manual Test Stand to improve accuracy and decrease variability between different operators.

Looking for the recommended firmness levels of different fruits?  We have a Chart for that!

Should you need certified firmness readings, we also have calibration services available for all firmness testers.
