The recognition of colorful fruit is one of the important research contents of agricultural machinery vision system. At present, the popular image segmentation method of color model is generally suitable for the case of large difference between fruit and background color. For the image segmentation where the difference between fruit and background color is not obvious, the image segmentation method based on color model cannot meet the actual needs. Therefore, this paper introduces the use of gray-level co-occurrence matrix to analyze the texture features of fruit and background, find out the texture feature parameters to distinguish the fruit and background, and segment the image with similar color between fruit and background. The experimental results show that texture features can not only successfully separate the red apple from the background but also have a very good effect on the segmentation of blue apple image with complex background.
