Abstract:
The sapota fruit is very perishable due to its rapid metabolic activities. The main objective of this study is to increase the shelf life and maintain the quality of sapota fruit during storage. Fruits were packed in different packaging materials such as corrugated fiber board (CFB) box, Bamboo basket, Nylon bags and control (gunny bag) and then stored at ambient condition (28 °C and 85-90%). The fruits were examined for PLW, fruit firmness and fruit decay with respect to physiological parameters. While, chemical parameters viz., TSS and total sugar were examined on every 2 days interval during storage. The result revealed that a fruit packed in CFB box was found to be more beneficial in reducing physiological loss in weight and fruit decay with minimum changes in chemical constituents than other packaging materials.
