Effect of skin coating and prepackaging on the storage of apple



Effect of skin coating and prepackaging on the storage of apple



Progressive Horticulture 1993; 23(1-4): 97-102



Apple fruits (cultivars Jonathan, King of Pippen and King of Tomkin were coated with 8% waxol-w-emulsion containing 0.4% sodium orthophenylphenate for 30-60 s or packaged in 200 gauge polyethylene bags provided with 0.2%, 0.4% or 0.8% ventilation. Untreated non-packed fruits acted as a control. Fruits were stored at ambient temperature (81-92 degrees F) and RH (61-95%). Lowest % weight loss and % wastage during storage was obtained with packaging with 0.2% ventilation.
