Abstract: 
Apples (Malus domestica Borkh. Red Delicious) were vacuum infiltrated (250 mm Hg) for 30 s with 0,1.5, 3 and 6% solutions of calcium chloride (CaCl__2) and stored at 0°C for 6 mo, followed by 1 wk storage at 20°C. Calcium chloride solutions at 3 and 6% concentrations significantly increased fruit firmness tested either immediately after removal from storage or after being held for I wk at 20°C. The correlation coefficient between calcium (Ca) content and fruit firmness (r=75) was highly significant. In another experiment, Red Delicious apples were treated by dip infiltration in 0 and 3% CaC1__2 solution, for 3 min, heat treatment for 4 d at 38°C and dip infiltration (3% CaCl__2) plus heat treatment, before storing at 0°C for 6 mo. Heat treatment and the combination of dip infiltration plus heat treatment significantly increased fruit firmness either immediately after removal from storage or after being held for 1 wk at 20°C.
