Shelf life of guava (Psidium guajava L.) fruit as influenced by maturity



Shelf life of guava (Psidium guajava L.) fruit as influenced by maturity



Haryana Journal of Horticultural Sciences 7(3/4): 148-151



Guava fruits, cvs Allahabad Safeda and Lucknow-49, were harvested at 5-day intervals from 6 to 21 August and analysed immediately and after ripening at room temperature in bamboo baskets covered with sacking. Fruits for local consumption gave the best results when harvested light yellow in colour, with a specific gravity of 0.98 - 0.99, and these fruits kept well for 2 days.
