Abstract:
The experiment entitled “Optimizing Post-Harvest Preservation of Karonda Fruits Through Packaging Materials and Storage Conditions” was carried out in Fruit and Vegetable Processing Unit Laboratory, Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Dapoli during 2013-2014. The experiment was conducted with Factorial Complete Randomized Design. The experiment comprised of two factors i.e., Factor A: Packaging material and Factor B: Storage condition and 16 treatment combinations which are repeated three times. The treatment P1 (Punnet boxes) and S2 (cold storage) resulted least physiological loss in weight, shrivelling and spoilage which results in maximum shelf life. The treatment P3 (Thermocol bowl) showed maximum total soluble solids, reducing sugars, total sugars, iron content and minimum titratable acidity. The cold storage (S2) condition increased the total soluble solids, reducing sugars, total sugars and iron content, while minimum titratable acidity was recorded with ambient storage (S1) condition. Overall, the combination of Punnet boxes (P1) and cold storage (S2) proved to be the most effective in preserving both the physical and chemical parameters of karonda fruits.
