A study was conducted to determine the effect of pre-heat treatment on chilling injury and the activities of cell wall hydrolases of persimmon fruits. Lower activities of endopolygalacturonase beta -galactosidase, arabinanase and xylanase (xylan endo-1,3- beta -xylosidase) were observed when the fruits were removed from cold storage (1+or-1 degrees C), followed by the ripening at ambient temperature (20 degrees C).
