Abstract:

The experiment was conducted during 2017-2018 at the department of Post- Harvest Technology, Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi, Karnataka to standardize the dual colour tinting technology in gerbera and carnation by using 6 different food dyes combinations (Red and Yellow, Orange and Green, Yellow and Pink, Red and Green, Blue and Green, Orange and Yellow) along with control at five per cent concentration along with three different immersion time (7.5, 10 and 12.5 hrs). The tinted flowers were evaluated for colour intensity, vase life, volume of water uptake and relative water content (RWC).The results showed that the control flowers immersed for 7.50 hrs recorded the higher vase life, water uptake and relative water content. Flowers treated with Orange and Green, Blue and Green, Orange and Yellow immersed for 12.50 hrs was found superior with respect to colour intensity and consumer preference with formation of intensified attractive tinted flowers.
