Abstract:

A laboratory experiment was conducted on “Study on the effect of post harvest treatments on shelf life of custard apple (Annona squamosa L.) variety Arka Sahan during storage’’ at department of fruit science, college of horticulture, Mandsaur. Experiment was statistically designed in Complete Randomized Design (CRD) with three replications. There were three components with 13 treatment combinations i.e. Calcium chloride at 2%, 4%, 6%, Benzyl adenine at 50ppm, 100ppm, 150ppm, Chitosan at 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5% and their combinations and control. Physical parameter (Fruit length, Diameter and Specific gravity), Marketable and Spoilage of fruit, Biochemical parameters i.e. Total Soluble Solids, Titrable acidity and Ascorbic acid were observed. The result concluded that the higher combination of treatments (chitosan 1.5 % + BA 150 ppm + CaCl2 6.0 %) was found to be the best for enhanced the shelf life of fruit upto 12 days with good quality and appearance of fruits as compared to control.
