Respiration, ethylene production, and shelf life extension in irradiated papaya fruit after storage under simulated shipping conditions



Respiration, ethylene production, and shelf life extension in irradiated papaya fruit after storage under simulated shipping conditions



Technical Bulletin, Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station (93): 12



gamma -Irradiation at 25-28.5 krad did not delay the respiratory peak or ripening rate in refrigerated or unrefrigerated fruit, and even at the optimum rate (75 krad) for shelf life extension, the respiratory peak was not delayed in fruits with >25% surface coloration. Refrigeration reduced the difference in respiratory response between irradiated (75-85.5 krad) and unirradiated fruit showing 13% colouration but irradiation delayed attainment of the edible ripe stage by 2 days.
