Comparison of the Ability to Evaluation of “Monthong” durian Maturity using Color Value from Spectrometer and Image Processing

Color is an important parameter for evaluating the quality of durian. The uneven skin of durian is difficult to measure with normal color instrument. Therefore, the aim of this research was to application of image processing analysis for measure spine tip color of “Monthong” durian and then apply to evaluate maturity. Color value of the spine tip of durian from image processing and spectrometer were investigated for classification of maturity. The maturity classification was divided into 8 levels i.e. 100 105 110 115 120 125 130 and 135 days after bloom. The results indicate that classification of durian by color value from spectrometer and image processing analysis give the correct classification of 80.4% and 78.6%, respectively.
