Abstract:

Apple ber (Zizyphus mauritiana) is a Thailand variety ber belongs to the family Rhamnaceae. Apple ber is developed by grafting Thailand green apple with Thai local ber. In the studies conducted on effect of surface coatings and packaging materials on quality of Apple ber (Zizyphus mauritiana) at different storage conditions at College of Horticulture- Rajendranagar, SKLTSHU, Rajendranagar. The experiment was conducted in two factor completely randomized design with three replications in which factor one includes nine treatments of surface coatings and packaging materials along with control (without any surface coating and packaging). Factor two includes two storage condition S1-cold storage (10±2ºC) and S2-room temperature (22±2ºC) and observations were recorded at 3 days interval upto end of shelf life of fruits. Results indicated that surface coatings, packaging materials and different storage conditions affected the quality of apple ber. Maximum TSS (15.96º) and titrabale acidity (0.15) was recorded by P5S1, at the end of shelf life and according to organoleptic evaluation P4S1 recorded the high score. Among interaction effects Chitosan 1% + HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) + cold storage(10±2ºC)is best of all the treatments followed by Chitosan 1% + PP (Polypropylene) + cold storage.
