Abstract:

An experiment was carried out at Postharvest laboratory of Uttar Banga Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Pundibari, West Bengal. Fruits treated with KMnO4 + wax coating kept in unperforated polythene cover under ambient conditions was recorded highest green-life (17.31 days), yellow-life (7.62 days) and shelf-life (24.93 days) when compared to control. The chlorophyll content was also highest in the same treatment on 3rd day (3.86 mg/100g) degraded upto 1.48 mg/100g on 18th day whereas in control it was recorded 3.12 mg/100g on 3rd day and degraded to 1.15 mg/100g on 9th day only. Similarly, the ripening percentage, fruit retention & PLW were also best in case of fruits treated with KMnO4 + wax coating kept in unperforated polythene cover (T3) when compared to control.
