Abstract:

In order to identify and compare the effects of different gauges of polythene packing and ventilation levels on improving the keeping quality of banana fruits cv. Grand Naine, a study was conducted using polyethylene bags of 150, 200, 250 and 300 gauges with ventilations of 0.5 and 1% under ambient conditions. Fruits packed in polythene covers of 300 gauge with 1% vents recorded significantly lower PLW (%); pulp to peel ratio, spoilage (%), TSS (oB) and total sugars (%). Significantly higher firmness (kg/cm2), good colour development, acidity (%), ascorbic acid content (mg/100 g) and correspondingly increased the shelf life up to 18.19 days with 300 gauge polyethylene packing with 1% ventilation.


Keywords: Banana cv Grand Naine, Polyethylene packing, Physico-chemical analysis, Shelf life.
