Determination of the storage ability of witloof chicory (Cichorium intybus) by biological aspects

, : Determination of the storage ability of witloof chicory (Cichorium intybus) by biological aspects. Acta Horticulturae (38): 227-236

Characteristics associated with good storage quality were as follows: respiration rate > 100 mg O2/kg fresh weight/24 h at 20 deg C; dry matter content > 4.8%; refractometer value > 5.7; and rapid decolorization of dichlorophenol-indophenol solution by leaf extracts.

From the tuberous chicory root, a 3rd carbohydrate fraction, in addition to the 2 other fractions which are usually extracted with ethanol or with water at room temperature, can be extracted with hot water ( C). This fraction contains a...

Witloof plants able to produce a firm head when forced in the absence of covering soil were selected and homogeneous F1 hybrid varieties were released. Simultaneously, a new forcing system was proposed in dark rooms with controlled temperature and...
