Agriculture / potato storage
English term or phrase: skin bloom
This term is from a description of a product that suppresses sprouting in potatoes.
Since using the product, users have reported excellent efficacy as well as a better skin bloom, skin finish, reduction in compression damage and bruising.
I am not sure what they mean with skin bloom? Any potato lovers out there?

Example sentence(s):
  • "The bloom (sometimes also called shine or lustre) is measured as the specular (i.e. direct or mirror-like) component of optical reflection from the potato skin surface. [...] The scale rates the bloom on a scale of 1 (good) to 5 (poor)."
  • "Dunschilligheid (verkurking): [...] aardappelen met een schil die nog geheel niet is verkurkt (jong en glanzend uiterlijk), wordt beoordeeld met een 0. [...] Als alle aardappelen [...] geheel verkurkt zijn, worden [ze] beoordeeld met een 5.
