Nowadays, citrus fruits, especially oranges, is very important in the human nutrition regime, and its quality characteristics assessment is very important. This study aimed to predict some biochemical characteristics of blood orange, using machine vision and artificial neural networks. In this experiment, the amount of vitamin C content, sugar content, and acidity (pH) were obtained using destructive laboratory methods. Images of blood orange samples were captured and 108 texture features and 57 color features were extracted on CIElab, RGB, HSV, and HIS color spaces and finally, the artificial neural networks method has been used to estimate the desired properties. To evaluate and select the most optimal artificial neural network, a feed-forward neural networks with Levenberg-Marquardt learning algorithm, the different number of neurons, and different transfer functions in the hidden and output layers was used. Finally, using the best neural network and 165 textural-color features, the amount of vitamin C content, sugar content, and pH were estimated with a correlation coefficient of 0.950, 0.968, and 0.884, respectively. Therefore, considering the appropriate correlation coefficient, machine vision and image processing technology can estimate some biochemical characteristics of blood oranges accurately.
