Studies on the storage of tropical fruits in polythene bags



Studies on the storage of tropical fruits in polythene bags



Luso: Journal of Science and Technology 1(2): 3-9



Under-ripe fruits of banana, tomato, pawpaw, lemon, orange, tangerine, lime, peach, guava, mango and avocado were stored individually either in open trays (controls) or in polyethylene bags containing vermiculite, sand or sawdust soaked in KMnO4 (as an ethylene oxidant). Before storage, all fruits were washed, dried, dipped in 0.5% Benlate (benomyl) for 2 min and dried again. They were stored in darkness at 20-30 deg C and assessed daily for ripeness.
