Cell wall hydrolysing enzymes and fruit softening in apple as affected by controlled atmosphere storage conditions


Cell wall hydrolysing enzymes and fruit softening in apple as affected by controlled atmosphere storage conditions



Indian Journal of Plant Physiology 9(3): 217-223



ISSN/ISBN: 0019-5502

The fruits of apples Golden Delicious were harvested at preclimacteric and climacteric stages of ripening and stored at 1 degrees C for 6 months under conventional cold (cold; 0.03% CO2 and 21% O2), controlled atmosphere (CA; 3% CO2 and 3% O2) and ultra low oxygen (ULO; 3% CO2 and 1% O2). The highest retention of fruit flesh firmness was observed under ULO followed by CA and cold storage.
