Abstract:

An investigation was conducted at post-harvest laboratory, Department of Horticulture, Lovely Professional University, Punjab during the academic year 2016-17 to study the effect of various packaging materials on fruit quality and shelf life of Kinnow. The packaging films include LDPE (25 micron), HDPE (15 micron), Polypropylene (25 micron), Shrink film (15 micron) and Cling film (15 micron) were used for experimentation. Liquid paraffin wax (10%) was used as a coating material. The fruits were then kept at ambient temperature. In case of quality related traits, the fruits under treatment T11 (Cling film at 15 micron + wax at 10%) recorded the maximum value for “TSS” when compared with other packaging treatments including control at 25th day after storage. With regard to remaining quality related traits, the fruits under treatment T11 (Cling film at 15 micron + wax at 10%) expressed the maximum value for “TSS: acid ratio”, Total sugars‟, “Non-reducing sugars” and “Sugar: acid ratio” at 25th day after storage.


Keywords: Polypropylene, Shrink, Cling, Ambient temperature, Kinnow.
