The effect of storage on fruit quality of watermelons (Citrullus vulgaris Schrad)

Watermelon cvs Sugar Baby and Top Yield were stored at 20-27 or 18-20 deg C for 2 weeks. The TSS content in Sugar Baby decreased during storage but it remained almost unchanged in Top Yield. Higher TSS content was found in fruit stored at 18-20 deg.
