The control of enzymatic browning in Balady guava fruits

, : The control of enzymatic browning in Balady guava fruits. Alexandria Journal of Agricultural Research 39(1): 315-329

After harvest, mature, light-yellow guava Balady fruits were dipped for 30 min in water (controls), 3% CaCl2, 0.2% B (as borax), 0.02% EDTA, 100 p.p.m. GA3 (as Berlex) or 100 p.p.m. 2,4-D. The fruits were then dried and stored at room temperature for 12 days. The experiment was repeated for 2 successive seasons. Room temperature conditions consisted of 17.6 degrees C and 78% RH in 1991 and 16.3 degrees and 64% RH in 1992.

Balady guava trees were sprayed at the end of September in 1998 and 1999 with 150 ppm GA3, 0.5% CaCl2 or 0.4% boron (borax). The fruits were harvested in the last week of October and stored at room temperature for 14 days. The results in both seas...

Enzymic browning in fruits is usually caused by catecholase (orthodiphenol oxidase) enzymes whilst laccases (para-diphenol oxidase) are present in some fruits and many phytopathogenic fungi. The biochemical properties these enzymes is reviewed. In...
