Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the effect of post-harvest treatments on storage quality and shelf life of ber (Ziziphus mauritiana Lamk.) under cold storage condition cv. Gola. The experiment was conducted during the Rabi-2020 at Horticultural Research Farm and P. G. Laboratory, Department of Horticulture, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat. Freshly harvested at physiological maturity of uniform size selected fruits were subject to post harvest treatments viz., GA3 (20, 40 and 60 ppm), CaCl2 (0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 %) along with wax coating (6 %) and without wax coating. Periodic observations at 5th, 10th, 15th and 20th day of storage were taken for evaluation of storage quality. The study results revealed that fruits treated with CaCl2 2.0 % when coated with wax (6 %) resulted in prolonging shelf life upto15 days with minimizing physiological loss in weight, spoilage, acidity and increased marketable fruits, firmness with maintaining higher level of TSS, ascorbic acid, total sugar, reducing sugar and non reducing sugar as compared to the control (water spray and without wax).
