Abstract:
The current investigation was performed to analyse the effect of coating of liquid paraffin on physiological loss in weight and volume of mango fruits (Mangifera indica L.) cv. Himsagar kept in CFB box during storage period at ambient conditions. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design with total 10 treatments and three replications. The treatments consisted of multiple pedicel length such as 2.5 cm fruit pedicel, 1.5 cm fruit pedicel, 0.5 cm fruit pedicel, 0 cm fruit pedicel as coated and uncoated with liquid paraffin in combinations. Whole fruit coated without pedicel were considered a treatment and uncoated fruits without pedicel were considered as control. Reduction in weight was found lowest in whole coated fruits without pedicel. Physiological loss in weight of fruits was calculated at every 02 days interval till 15th day. On the last day of storage minimum PLW was noted in full coated fruit having no pedicel (12.45 %) while it was found maximum in fruits left untreated i.e. control (28.40%).
