Abstract: The aim of this study was to describe the growth curve of “Aurora 1” peaches using fruit height and diameter data over time through diphasic sigmoidal models constructed from eight combinations of the following models: Brody, Gompertz and Logistic. Data were obtained from an experiment carried out in 2005 in the municipality of Vista Alegre do Alto, São Paulo, Brazil. The parameters of models were adjusted by the least squares method using the Gauss-Newton algorithm implemented in the R software. Assumptions of normality, homogeneity and independence of residues were verified based on Shapiro-Wilk, Breush and Pagan and Durbin-Watson tests, respectively. The goodness of fit of models was verified according to the corrected Akaike information criterion (AICc), residual standard deviation (RSD), asymptote adjustment index (AI) and nonlinearity measures. All models adjusted for both fruit height and diameter variables met the assumptions of normality, independence and homoscedasticity of errors. In addition, all of them present good quality of fit to fruit height and diameter data, since they presented AI values close to one and low RSD values and non-linearity measures. However, the double Gompertz (GG) and the Logistic + Gompertz (LG) models presented, respectively, the best quality of fit to fruit height and diameter data in relation to the other models. It could be concluded that all diphasic sigmoidal models evaluated showed good fit to height and diameter data and can be used to describe the growth curve of “Aurora-1” peaches, according to goodness of fit criteria. However, it is important to highlight that GG and LG models presented the best quality of fit and can be selected to describe the height and diameter growth of “Aurora 1” peach fruits, respectively, with maximum expected growth close to 63 mm in height and 48 mm in diameter.
