Physiological postharvest response of lemon balm (Melissa officinalis L.)



Physiological postharvest response of lemon balm (Melissa officinalis L.)



Zeitschrift fur Arznei and Gewurzpflanzen 5(3/4): 145-153



Averaged across 7 trials, freshly harvested M. officinalis herbs were characterized by a high respiration rate at 10 degrees C 523 +or-109 W/t, at 20 degrees C 1190 +or-202 W/t and at 30 degrees C 2342 +or-232 W/t. The comparatively high respiration levels were maintained throughout a post-harvest period of 80 hours, because the values decreased only by half of their initial rate for each temperature range.
