Fruit quality detection using near-infrared spectroscopy is a fast, accurate, and non-destructive method. Hence the fruits can still be marketed after the measurement. The purpose of this study was to analyze the quality of sapodilla fruit using near-infrared spectroscopy. The study was conducted in March to August 2017 at the Plant Production Technology Laboratory of  Horticulture Division, Agriculture Faculty of Padjadjaran University, Jatinangor. The method used in this study was multivariate data analysis of chemometrics. The spectra data were obtained using portable nearinfrared spectrometer (NirVana AG410, Integrated Spectronics Pty, Ltd, Australia) with wavelength range of 312-1050 nm. Calibration and prediction models were acquired using partial least square (PLS). The results revealed that non-destructive method using near-infrared spectrometer was able to measure sapodilla fruit quality such as, firmness, total dissolved solids, and color values including L*, a*, b*, ho, and C*.
