The Jonathan is recognised as a low density apple and light weight packs are often a problem with this variety. During 1954 a small scale test was carried out to illustrate the effect of handling procedure prior to cool storage on the loss in weight and quality of the fruit. Orchard pick Jonathans were obtained from the Illawarra Orchard Company, Karragullen and from Mr. A. McAlinden of Bridgetown. After subjecting the fruit to various pre-cool storage treatments, it was placed in commercial chambers at Illawarra and Tropical Traders Patersons Ltd., respectively.
