Extending the post harvest life of unrefrigerated avocado persea americana fruit by storage in poly ethylene bags

, : Extending the post harvest life of unrefrigerated avocado persea americana fruit by storage in poly ethylene bags. Scientia Horticulturae (Amsterdam) 14(3): 219-226

Mature 'Hass' avocado (P. americana Mill.) fruit were enclosed in sealed polyethylene bags and stored at ambient temperatures for different times. Modified atmospheres developed inside the bags, and fruit stayed firm and apparently non-ripening while they remained enclosed. Storage time and temperature influenced ripening of fruits after they were removed from bags. Most storage treatments resulted in an extension to the total postharvest life of fruits compared to control fruits which were not stored in such bags. Abnormal ripening characteristics were observed when storage temperature was high and storage time exceeded 8 days.
