Abstract:
Tomato production has increased in recent years due to the economic. The crop's nutritional value is significant. Numerous research improvements made across the whole value chain have enabled this increase. Scientific study, on the other hand, has primarily focused on production while ignoring postharvest difficulties. Tomato growers have thus had good harvests in recent years, yet good yields in underdeveloped nations do not translate into profit because mostly tomatoes are wasted after harvest. According to this study, the fruit's postharvest quality and shelf life will be influenced in part by some postharvest handling procedures and treatments performed after harvest. Harvesting, precooling, washing, and disinfecting, sorting and grading, packaging, storage, and shipping were all vital in preserving quality and extending shelf life. Using appropriate postharvest treatments such as refrigeration, heat treatment, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), and the application of 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) and calcium chloride (CaCl2).
