Behaviour of tamarillo (Cyphomandra betacea (Cav.) Sendtner) in cold storage

Proceedings of the Interamerican Society for Tropical Horticulture 35: 285-290

Behaviour of tamarillo (Cyphomandra betacea (Cav.) Sendtner) in cold storage

Fruits were harvested when red, separated into 2 sizes (58.8-63.4 and 76.8-81.2 g) and stored at 0 and 7 degrees C and 85-90% RH for 15 and 32 days. Fruits were analysed for pulp firmness, soluble solids, colour, pH, titratable acidity, CO2 evolution and pedicel infection before and after storage. Results showed that the optimum storage temperature for tamarillo fruits was 7 degrees C.
