Abstract
Cold storage of 'Dashehari' mangoes at 7.2.degree.-7.9.degree. C and relative humidity of 85-90%, harvested on 2 dates after precooling, and after 2 or 4 days exposure to room temperature, revealed that lettuce-green fruits and those with light yellow color stored successfully for 35 or 25 days, respectively. Precooling increased the satisfactory storage life. Even after 2 or 4 days room-temperature storage prior to cold storage, the green fruits were in good condition for 35 days and light yellow fruits for 25 days. These fruits, after removal from cold storage, ripened to a satisfactory palatability.
