Effect of wrappers and wax coating on the apple storage at room temperature in Lahual Valley

Effect of wrappers and wax coating on the apple storage at room temperature in Lahual Valley

Plant Science 5: 152-154

The effects were compared of tissue paper and polyethylene wrappers, wax coating and wax + tissue paper on the storage quality and composition of Red Delicious and Golden Delicious apples stored at an altitude of 3500 m (at temperatures down to -20 deg C) for 7 months. Red Delicious kept better than Golden Delicious. Polyethylene was the best wrapping material, as indicated by the least fruit rotting, shrivelling and weight loss.
