A Nirmala, M Vijayalakshmi and J Aruna Kumari
Flowers are a beautiful, complex and delicate commodity that degrades in a matter of couple of days to a week. Various post-harvest technologies for different flowers have been standardised by researchers in order to maintain the flower in vase appealing to consumers for a prolonged period of time. Precooling, standardisation of pulsing solutions, selecting the best storage method, temperature, packaging material, and standardisation of the holding solution for a specific flower are all these includes post-harvest technologies. This review delves into the packing materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, and newspaper suggested by various studies for distinct flowers that store well at different temperatures. This will lay the groundwork for future post-harvest research on flowers.
