Abstract:

The longest storage life was recorded in Sweet Orange cv. “Mosambi”, Mandarin cv. “Kinnow”, Acid Lime, Pineapple cv. “Queen”, Beetroot, Watermelon, Capsicum cv. “Bombay Green”, Cabbage, Ivy Gourd, Bitter Gourd (Green) and Hot chilli, and the shortest in Broccoli, Lettuce and Ridge Gourd inside cold room. Storage at Ecofrost at 10°C and 93% relative humidity can extend life and improve post-harvest quality retention for fruit and veggies, but its effects vary depending on the commodity.
