Abstract:
The Effect of different packaging materials on the storage life and quality of jamun fruits were investigated. Fruits of jamun were harvested at firm ripe and divided into requisite lots for further handling. First was packed in packaging materials viz., Poly ethylene (100 gauge), Poly ethylene (150 gauge), Poly propylene (100 gauge), Poly propylene (150 gauge), Punnet Box, CFB box and Bamboo basket The observations on various physico-chemical quality attributes of fruits were recorded at different storage intervals. During storage fruits packed in Poly ethylene (150 gauge) were found to reduce significantly the respiration rate, rotting percentage and minimum loss of titratable acidity Fruits packed in Poly ethylene (150 gauge) with maximum shelf life of 6 days at ambient storage and 12 days at cold storage respectively.
