Abstract:

Storage studies of matured green pineapple fruits of cultivar Kew and MD-2 were carried out at ambient condition. The physiological weight loss (PLW) was highest (9.62±0.65%) in MD-2 cultivar whereas the PLW was lowest (9.16±0.31%) in Kew cultivar on 9th day after storage (DAS). The firmness of fruit was highest (2.86±0.56 kgcm-2) in MD-2 and TSS was highest in Kew (18.18±0.32 °B) on 9th DAS and there was significant difference during storage. Titrable acidity was lowest (0.08±0.01%) in MD-2 and Vitamin C was lowest (8.66±0.66%) in Kew on 9th DAS. The reducing (6.60±0.82%) was highest whereas the non-reducing (1.58±0.58) was lowest in Kew on 9th DAS. The overall acceptability (OAA) score was highest (8.03±0.11) in MD-2 on 6th DAS.
