Abstract:

As most of the fruits are highly perishable, short shelf life remains one of the major impediments in the market and to increasing international trade, despite several research efforts in the past to extend its storage life. A suitable method for shelf life extension, which avoids detrimental effects on quality of fruit, would be beneficial for both the consumer and the producer. One such strategy is use of postharvest treatments with polyamines. Polyamines (PAs) are biological compounds of low molecular weight with aliphatic nitrogen groups that are ubiquitous in living organisms, both animals and plants. The most common PAs are putrescine (Put), spermidine (Spd) and spermine (Spm). Polyamines (Spm, Spd, Put) and ethylene production are interrelated, since they share a common precursor (SAM). Therefore, there is a possibility that polyamines may regulate the process of fruit ripening and storage. The present paper reviews the effect of exogenous polyamine application on improving the shelf life and quality of fruits during storage.
