Meet Fruit Maps!  What is it?

While the F-750 Produce Quality Meter has been on the market and in use for a few years now, this fall Felix Instruments took the device a step further. They’ve partnered with Kerry Walsh, a professor at Central Queensland University and his research team to utilize the seemingly endless fields of Calypso Mangoes in creating the world’s first FREE fruit maturity app: Fruit Maps. This program will be available to any and all F-750 Produce Quality Meter users. Fruit Maps takes data generated on F-750 and puts it into a visual format that can be easily accessed.

At present, Fruit Maps is in its final development stages and exists as a website with credentials provided to F-750 Produce Quality Meter beta testers. In the (very) near the future, Felix Instruments is investing their resources to turning Fruit Maps into a phone app, allowing farmers to see the non-destructive readings from the F-750 in real time as it is collected and plotted by Fruit Maps whether they are at home, on the road, or in the field.

Avocado
Cherry
Mango
Grape
Kiwifruit
Sultana
Apple
Pear

When Fruit Maps is released, all F-750 Produce Quality Meter Users will receive an update and the opportunity to create a personal account to use Fruit Maps. All Fruit Maps updates will work with any version of the F-750 Produce Quality Meter, so users who already own the F-750 will not need to update their model.
