Abstract:

Tomato is one of the most widely consumed vegetable crops and it is an important source of bioactive compounds like lycopene, phenolics, vitamins and ascorbic acid. The content of these bioactive compounds largely depends upon their post-harvest storage. In the present study, the influence of post-harvest temperature on the bioactive compounds was determined. During post-harvest of tomatoes (of two different variety hybrid and local) at two different temperatures 4°C in a refrigerator and at room temperature (max 28°C min 19.2°C) in the laboratory conditions were maintained for 42 days and their activity were analyzed. On storage at room temperature exhibited significant high antioxidant activity in comparison to fruits stored at 4°C. The total phenol content in freshly harvested hybrid and local tomato fruits were near to 0.05 mg GAE/g fresh wt., which increased in both the variety after storage. The hybrid variety fruits have maximum total phenol content at room temperature while lowest in local fruits stored at 4°C.The hybrid variety tomato fruits had nearly 74 percent lycopene content more than local variety on the day of harvest. The lycopene concentration gradually increased on the storage for 42 days in both the varieties of tomatoes at both the temperature conditions.
