Abstract

ASCORBIC ACID CONTENT OF STRAWBERRIES of intense light of early June averaged 34 per cent more ascorbic acid than did the same varieties taken in late September. Burkhart and Lineberry (1942) found that berries ripening in the sun contained eight per cent more ascorbic acid than those shaded by the leaves of the plant and 29 per cent more than those ripening under the dense shade of a strawberry cup. Hansen and Waldo (1944) shaded berries as well as both berries and plants. The unshaded berries contained 13 per cent more ascorbic acid than did the shaded ones and 68 per cent more than where plants and berries were shaded.
