Effect of different postharvest applications on storage of 'Valencia' oranges



Effect of different postharvest applications on storage of 'Valencia' oranges



Acta Horticulturae (553(Vol. 2)): 561-564



Orange Valencia fruits were harvested and treated with hot water for 3 minutes at 53 degrees C, hot water + wax, fungicide (0.5% Fruitgard 70T), fungicide + wax, water (control) and wax. Treated fruits were placed in carton boxes and plastic bags, and stored for 6 months at 4 degrees C and 85-90% relative humidity. Weight loss of fruits increased with storage time, and weight loss of hot water + wax treated fruits was less than that in the control.
