Abstract:

Sapota (cv: Cricket Ball) harvested from farmers field, packaged in customized Corrugated Fibre Board box of size 400×300×100mm, 5ply rate, 180GSM kraft paper thickness with 20BF bursting strength withstood drop test as compared CFB boxes made from other combinations. These CFB boxes had less cobb value (12.42g/m2) and puncture resistance (82.86N/m2) compared to other boxes. The sapota fruits packaged and stored in these boxes had a shelf life of 16 days at low temperature storage (18°C, 80% RH) and 6 days at ambient storage condition (28-30°C, 55% RH).
