The effect of packaging material and storage period was investigated in medium shelled walnuts. The walnut kernels were mechanically dried (40°C) and packed in Gunny bags, Cardboard and HDPE packaging’s and stored under ambient temperature for a period of nine months and were analysed for various color values. The experiment was carried out according to completely randomised design with three replications. During storage, decrease in L*, b*, hue angle and increase in a* value of walnuts was observed at ambient temperature. Storage of walnuts in HDPE packagings were more acceptable with respect to the color properties measured as compared to the other packaging types.
