The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of edible coating and gamma irradiation treatment on mould growth and storage quality of strawberry. Strawberry fruit after harvest were treated with 0.5 1.0% (w/v) carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) coating followed by irradiation at 2.0 kGy and subsequent storage under refrigerated conditions for 21 days. The investigations revealed that CMC coating alone at levels 0.5% and 0.75% w/v was not effective in delaying the decay and inhibiting the appearance of mould growth in strawberry fruit. Treatment of irradiation in combination with 1.0% w/v CMC coating was found significantly (P ? 0.05) effective compared with other treatments in maintaining the quality and delaying the decay and appearance of the mould growth in strawberry up to 18 days of refrigerated storage. Combinatory treatment of irradiation and coating can help to a greater extent in facilitating the marketing of the strawberry fruit to distant markets other than the local market, thereby benefiting growers and consumers.
