In order to reduce the apple damage of extrusion and collision caused by machine during apple picking, study law of apple damage is necessary. A compressive test is carried out on precision micro controlled electronic universal testing machine, red apple of Fuji type at mature state as the test material. Through analyzing mechanical characteristics of apple compression, the mechanical model is established. By calculating, obtained compressive elastic modulus of apple is 2.091MPa, the maximum elastic limit is 0.130MPa, and the elastic modulus of compression remained at the scope of 5~7MPa. When the stress value of Apple reaches its yield limit 0.125MPa, the deformation of apple is accelerated. This study can be used to make a reasonable prediction of mechanical damage of apple.
