In order to develop a non-destructive analytical technique for tomato fruit quality assessment, Delayed Luminescence (DL) measurements have been performed on several lots of cherry tomatoes grown in different areas of south-eastern Sicily, with and without the PGI certification "Pomodoro di Pachino". Preliminary results, in which obtained DL yields are compared with tomato soluble solid content, will be discussed.
