        development of fruit upon picking
       Damage - refers to defects which significantly downgrade appearance and
        decrease marketability of the fruit. These are usually brought about by

        defects include bruises/scars, stains, decomposition, and presence of
        insects/foreign matter/diseases on fruit.

      especially designed to accommodate a fixed number of fruit.
     Papaya - To prevent bruises, it is recommended that each fruit be
      wrapped in tissue paper and cushioned with paper wool or similar
