Abstract:

Aim of present investigation was analyse the effect of post-harvest degreening with ethylene on Vitamin C content of Acid lime Cv. Balaji. The present research was conducted at Post-harvest laboratory, college of horticulture, Sri Konda Laxman Telangana State Horticultural University, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, during the year 2018-2019. Degreening experiment was designated with factorial completely randomized design with two factors viz., (A) Ethylene concentrations, (B) Number of pulsings. Vitamin C is most important among the quality parameters of citrus fruits. This investigation concluded that the Vitamin-C content of Acid lime Cv. Balaji declined with ethylene treatment but, the effect of ethylene was not directly on Vitamin-C, which decreases with ripening. 10-15ppm ethylene with shortest exposure times gives the uniform degreening and good levels of Vitamin C.
