    Post question about vocabulary

    In my experiment in an orchard, some of the fruits dropped and some of them wrinkled. What word is used to say the reduced fruits at harvest? I mean the dropped ones+wrinkled ones. Any idea is appreciated.

    Unspoiled?

    80% of the fruits were unspoiled.

    Fruits which have dropped are called windfalls.
