U.S. Grade Standards for fruits are voluntary and provide the fruit, vegetable and specialty crop industry with a uniform language for describing the quality and condition of commodities in the marketplace.
The PDF publications provided within this section supersede any previously issued publications.
Many U.S. Grade Standards are supplemented by Inspection Instructions. These instructions discuss special grading situations, expand on descriptions of quality requirements, outline grading procedures, and cover other related topics.
Special photo guides, models, color standards, and other visual interpretative guides are available for reference to specific U.S. Grade Standards. More information about visual aids >
