Abstract:

The present investigation consisting of different treatments viz T1-Zeolite-LDPE composite bag, T2-Silver-zeolite-LDPE composite bag, T3-Chlorine-zeolite-LDPE composite bag, T4- Zeolite-LDPE composite bag + CFB, T5- Silver-zeolite-LDPE composite bag + CFB, T6-Chlorine-zeolite-LDPE composite bag + CFB, T7-Only CFB, T8 – Common polybag and T9 – Control was carried out in Department of Post-harvest Technology, College of Horticulture, Bagalkot during the year 2018-19. The experiment was laid out in a completely randomized design with three replications. The main objective was to find out the effective packaging material to extend the shelf life of acid lime fruits. Various physico-chemical quality traits were recorded at regular interval during storage of fruits. The acid lime fruits packed in T6 showed maximum titratable acidity (7.33 %), juice percentage (50.01 %), Texture (35.27 N) and minimum PLW (17.04 %), fruit decay (20.74 %),total soluble solids (7.20 ºB), TSS/Acid ratio (0.98) and highest sensory scores among the treatments during storage of 12 days.
