Abstract:
Mango is considered as choicest fruit all over the world. Indian mangoes especially Alphonso, Kesar are having large demand worldwide because of their unique taste and flavour. Short period of season and less shelf life of mango are the major constraint in increasing the export market. For increasing shelf life and quality, treatment of precooling followed by cold storage is very much essential. It was observed by many of the farmers that mango showed chilling injury when stored below 12 OC, hence performance of mango fruits at higher temperature ranges of precooling and cold storage need to be evaluated. Hence, the experiment was carried out at Post-harvest Technology Laboratory of College of Horticulture, Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri during the year 2018-2019 and 2019-2020. The experiment was laid out in factorial completely randomized design (FCRD) with number of treatment combinations 16, replicated thrice, comprising four temperature ranges of precooling and storage temperatures: Ambient Temperature (Control), 16 ± 2 ˚C, 14 ± 2 ˚C, 12 ± 2 ˚C. Among sixteen precooling and storage temperature interactions, fruits stored and precooled at 12 ± 2 0C scored highest weight, volume and lowest PLW of mango fruits followed by 14 ± 2 0C at the end of the experiment at 35th DAS.
