Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on pungent chili variety Tejaswani to find out the effective chemical treatment and drying method for better quality dry chilies. The result showed that there was significant difference among the drying methods and post-harvest chemical treatments for all the quality parameters except in weight loss during drying (%), pod length (cm) and pod circumference (cm). Oven drying was found to be efficient method as compared to sun and polyhouse drying in time to reach 8-10% moisture, maximum capsaicin (0.82%), less number of wrinkles, with good color development than control. Among the interactions, calcium chloride (2 percent) with oven drying resulted the minimum (5.04%) percent of damaged pods, maximum content of oleoresin (14.55 percent), whereas polyhouse drying with calcium chloride was effective in retention of capsanthin (25556 EOA) than control.
