Abstract:
The present study shows that the post-harvest physical properties data of fruits and vegetables are important in adoption and design of various handling, packaging, storage and transportation systems. Physical properties namely, length, width, thickness, sphericity, volume, projected area, weight loss, bio yield point and firmness were determined with respect to storage period. At the end of 11 days storage, the fruit cumulative weight loss in ambient conditions was 19.4%. Bio yield point, firmness of kinnow fruits decreased with respect to number of days of storage. The firmness of kinnow fruit was significantly higher in stem-calyx axis in vertical position than that in horizontal position.
