The mechanical properties (like sensory texture etc.) of plants/fruits directly depend on their microstructures. Therefore, it is very important to well understand the geometry and topology of cells in order to control the microstructure for better mechanical response. In this research, techniques of digital image processing and segmentation in conjunction with mathematical morphology models are used to visualize and analyze the 3D cells of potato. ImageJ and MATLAB are used throughout in this study. The labeled image stacks are essential for studying quantitative characterization of 3D cells, MATLAB is used to label each image stacks. By using MATLAB 12420 cells were segmented within a short period of time and labeled each cell uniquely.
