Abstract:

Papaya (Carica papaya L.) is economically important and a popular fruit. It is consumed as fresh fruit and vegetable and also used as also used as processed product. The present experiment was carried out during 2016-2017. The effect of different wrapping materials on shelf life and quality of papaya cv. Taiwan was investigated at ambient temperature during storage. The physical and quality characteristics such as Physiological loss in weight, Percentage of ripening, spoilage, firmness, shelf life, ß-carotene, TSS, acidity, Ascorbic acid, sugars and along with organoleptic evaluation were studied at an interval of 3 days upto 12th days after storage. The data were statistically analyzed using completely randomized design. The study shows that the Paddy straw and News paper shows high shelf life days and increased upto (11.83 days) when compared to control (5 days) and also shows highest score for organoleptic evaluation. At the end of storage studies T3- Paddy straw stored fruits have shown the best results for TSS, Titrable acidity, Firmess, PLW (%), ripening percentage, ascorbic acid, TSS, sugars and carotene content.
