Abstract:

Pear cv. Nashpati were subjected to three treatments viz. T1 (Individual Shrink wrapping), T2 (Shrink Wrapping in trays) and T3(Control treatment) were stored in ambient condition (29-32oC temperature and 55-78% relative humidity) in which periodical observations were recorded on physiological loss in weight (PLW, %), total soluble solid (TSS, °Brix), titratable acidity (mg of malic acid/g), decay loss (%) and sensory quality (%) at Department of Post-Harvest Management, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Arunachal Pradesh, India during the year 2017-2018. Result showed reduced rate of PLW (3.134%) and postharvest decay losses (30%) along with marketable quality of fruit having TSS (9.7oBrix) and acidity (0.224%) in T1 upto 20 days of storage as compared to other treatment. Hence, T1 (Individual Shrink wrapping) was the most suitable packaging material for extending the shelf life of pear fruits upto 20-25 days at ambient condition with least PLW and maintaining the marketable fruit quality, which can be recommended for the pear grower for increasing the shelf life and better income generation in the near future of this region.
