Researchers study berry flavor

Monday, June 24, 2013

University of California researchers are trying to figure out how water affects the flavor of berries.

They are conducting trials to determine if different levels of irrigation can actually change berry flavor. They are currently growing berries, giving them different amounts of water, and asking people to rate their flavor.

Researchers are also looking into whether changes in irrigation levels alter the sugar and anti-oxidant levels in strawberries.
