Abstract:

Packaging of fruits is an important postharvest management practice for increasing the shelf life, and till date there is no report on taktir fruits (Garcinia lancifolia. Roxb.) on the changes in physiological loss in weight (PLW), decay loss and fruit quality attributes in different packages under storage. In the study, fruits were harvested at 75% colour turning stage and packed in seven different packaging materials aimed to identify a suitable packaging material to extend the shelf life with desirable fruit quality under ambient condition. The result showed that the use of non-perforated LDPE exhibited the minimum PLW (2.73%) and decay (31.11%) followed by non-perforated HDPE, exhibiting shelf life up to 9 days. Fruit quality attributes viz. TSS (8.03°B), titratable acidity (1.72%), ascorbic acid (10.05 mg/100g) were found to retained better in fruits packed under non-perforated LDPE up to nine days of storage. Hence it is concluded that taktir fruits packed in non-perforated LDPE and HDPE maintained the overall quality of the fresh fruits for up to 9 days at ambient condition, and may be considered as an economic and alternative storage method. The packaging materials also effectively retained fruit firmness and reduced nutrient loss.
