Abstract:
The effect of packaging and storage temperature on the shelf life of jasmine flowers were studied under ambient and refrigerated storage condition during 2020 at Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. Storage of the jasmine flowers (cv. Ramanathapuram Gundumalli) packed in polythene bags under the refrigerated condition were significantly increased the shelf life of jasmine flowers. Packing of harvested jasmine flower buds in 200 gauge black polythene bag without ventilation and stored under refrigerated condition at 10 °C retain more moisture content, very less physiological loss of weight, less solute leakage, more freshness index, retention of colour and long shelf life of 70.73 hrs. From the results of this experiment, we concluded that packing the harvested flower buds in 200 gauge black polythene bag without ventilation and stored in the refrigerated condition at 10 °C has improved the physiological and visual quality parameters.
