Instrumental texture profile analysis (TPA) of nine batches of date flesh with different quality levels was performed and the parameters were related to its physico-chemical properties (i.e., color, mass, length, width of whole date fruit as well as moisture, crude fiber, fructose, glucose, sucrose, and pectin contents). Results of instrumental TPA showed significant linear correlation of hardness with moisture content, crude fiber and pectin content (p
