Effect of modified atmospheric packaging on shelf life of custard apple CV. Balanagar

Abstract:
Custard apple being a climacteric fruit, has short life because of fast ripening followed by senescence accompanied with quality changes and decay loss. So, the experiment was under taken in Fruit research Station, Sangareddy during Rabi season by Completely Randomized Design using 8 different treatments ranging from T1-Packing of fruits in polypropylene bag with 10 pores, T2-Packing of fruits in polypropylene bag with 20 pores T3-Packing of fruits in polypropylene bag with 30 pores, T4-Packing of fruits in polypropylene bag with 40 pore, T5-Packing of fruits in polypropylene bag with 50 pores, T6 -Packing of fruits in polypropylene bag with 60 pores, T7 -Packing of fruits in polypropylene bag without any pores and T8-control (No packing) stored at low temperature (13 ºC±1.). The polypropylene bags with 20 pores under T2 recorded the significantly lowest physiological loss in weight than the control (T8). Similarly TSS and Total sugars were significantly lower in fruits packed in polypropylene bags with 20 pores under T2 than the control-T8, indicating the delayed ripening and hence increasing the storage /shelf life of the fruits.
