A key issue in fruit export is classification and sorting for marketing. In this work image processing techniques are used to grad Thompson orange fruit. For this purpose, fourteen parameters were extracted, comprising area, eccentricity, perimeter, length/area, blue value, green value, red value, width, contrast, texture, width/area, width/length, roughness, and length. Adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), linear, and nonlinear regression methods were used. Based on results, mean square error (MSB), sum squared error (SSE) and coefficient of determination (R 2 ) were 3.47e-08, 3.47e-07, 0.988 (ANFIS), 51.33, 4927.59, 0.866 (linear reg.) and 64.85, 6092.5, 0.832 (non-linear reg.), respectively. ANFIS model was shown as the best fit model based on previously listed performance evaluation criteria.
