    Optical Coherence Tomography:  A Promising Imaging Modality for Onion Quality Control

    Onions are one of the most frequently purchased vegetables worldwide, yet storage-related onion defects remain a real problem. Postharvest diseases that cannot be detected with simple human inspection are one of the leading threats to onion profitability. Typical onion defects include watery scale, neck rot caused by the fungus Botrytis allii, and bruising (see Fig. 1). As the demands of consumers for year-round access to high quality fresh produce continue to rise, there is a need for inexpensive and reliable technologies that can nondestructively screen fruits and vegetables for internal defects.
