Non-destructive, Brix and Browing monitoring for multiple fruit types and varieties

The H-100 is a portable, non-destructive instrument that measures the internal quality of fruit using semi-transmissive, diffuse reflection, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopic analysis technology. It can be used to help determine harvest times and to make decisions based on the analysis of fruit growth quality in the orchard.

Trusted by thousands of clients in the fruit industry, the SUNFOREST H-100F has proven to be a reliable instrument for determining and tracking Brix, Dry Matter (DM), and Browning (Apples).

A demonstration model is included for the fruit that you select.  A bias correction should be made by comparing the nondestructive prediction to the actual value of the juicing refractometer.  If desired, models can be upgraded to your exact fruit variety.  Perform comparative tests with the H-100F to destructive measurements, then send this to us and a new model will be built for you.  Then download this to your meter for better accuracy. 

GPS Application (by option): The H-100C is compatible with GPS application to show a travel line on orchard map and indicates DM and Brix dots along the path of samplings.

Measurement models:

  • Apple Brix/DM/Browning detection
  • Peach Brix
  • Mango Brix/DM (DM available on green-red mangos)
  • Pear Brix
  • Persimmon Brix
  • Grape Brix (available on Shine-muscat and Campbell which has large ball and no gap in the cluster, should work with any type of grape with no gap in the cluster)


  • Metrics:  Sugars (Brix), Dry Matter (%), Browning (Browning Index)
    • Metrics may vary by fruit.
    • Browning is available for apples only.
  • Measurement range: 
    • Sugars 5.0 to 25.0 Brix
    • 5.0 to 40% Dry Matter
    • Browning index 0 to 100
      • Measurement range may vary by apple variety.
      • Browning index 0 to 100 is an established Sunforest standard.
      • Browning level 20 is set as cutoff line.   Less 20 is regarded as normal, 20+ as abnormal (browning).
