Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L) is one of the most widely consumed fresh vegetable. However, its highly perishable nature limits its postharvest life. Temperature and relative humidity management to extend shelf life and maintain postharvest quality of perishables is the main problem in tropical countries like Ethiopia. Though mechanical refrigerators are the best option to do, it is unaffordable for farmers and small retailers in developing countries to buy and run. So development of cheap…

Effect of harvesting stages and postharvest treatments on shelf life and quality of tomato (Lycoper-sicon esculentum Mill. var. Pearson) stored under ZECC condition
Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) is one of the important commercial high value crops of Afghanistan. Among the different local varieties grown in Afghanistan, the “Pearson” variety is most
EFFECT OF DRYING TEMPERATURE AND DURATION ON NUTRITIONAL QUALITY OF COCHORO VARIETY TOMATO (lycopersicon esculentum L.)
Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) is popular vegetable among all parts of the world. However, marketing of fresh tomato during peak season is a great problem because of its short postharvest life
Effects of packaging and storage conditions on quality and storage life of tomato fruits (Lycopersicon esculentum MILL) in Kura, Kano State, Nigeria
Nigeria being the second largest producer of tomatoes in Africa and 13 th in the world has an estimated total postharvest loss of over 60%. This prompted search for simple cost effective methods to
Effect of chemical dips and packaging materials on quality and shelf life of tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum) in Kura, Nigeria
Purpose: Tomato postharvest losses are as high as 60% in Nigeria despite being 13th producer. This could be reduced when tomatoes were carefully treated and packaged. This research investigated the
Kinetic modeling of quality changes of tomato during storage
Quality deterioration in tomato along the supply chain due to postharvest losses has become a continual challenge in Middle East countries. The aim of this study is to determine the changes in tomato

Effect of harvesting and storage conditions on the post harvest quality of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) cv. Roma VF
TLDR
High and significant variation was observed in quality characteristics under different harvesting stages, storage conditions and their combinations and the highest value for rotting and total sugar content was distinguished in full ripens tomato.
EFFECT OF POSTHARVEST TREATMENTS ON PHYSICOCHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND SHELF LIFE OF TOMATO (LYCOPERSICON ESCULENTUM MILL.) FRUITS DURING STORAGE
The physicochemical characteristics and shelf life of tomato fruits treated with Gibberellic acid (0.1, 0.3 and 0.5%), Calcium chloride (0.5, 1 and 1.5%) and Salicylic acid (0.1, 0.2 and 0.4mM) were
Storage behavior of tomato inside a zero energy cool chamber
Tomato fruits were harvested at the accurate stage of maturity age and stored inside the zero energy cool chamber (ZECC) which has a shelf-life of only about 7 days at ambient temperature (25℃).
Harvest stages and pre-cooling influence the quality and storage life of tomato fruit.
TLDR
Investigating the influence of harvesting stages and pre -cooling on the physico-chemical quality characteristics of stored tomato fruit revealed that the treatment resulted in significantly higher fruit firmness, ascorbic acid content and lower disease incidence, however it was more effective at the yellow stage of maturity.
Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) fruit quality and physiological parameters at different ripening stages of Lithuanian cultivars.
TLDR
Four cultivars ('Neris', 'Svara', 'Vytėnu didieji', 'Jurgiai') and one hybrid ('Vaisa') of tomato were investigated at the Lithuanian Institute of Horticulture from 2007-2008 and lycopene and β-carotene contents, colour indices and hue angle increased.
Evaluation of self-life and organoleptic aspects of fruits stored in a modified traditional earthen pot cool chamber
The efficacy of earthen pot cool chamber to store vegetables and fruits were studied using tomato, grapes and brinjal. The quality retaining capacity in the products kept in earthen pot cool chamber
Zero Energy Cool Chamber for Extending the Shelf-Life of Tomato and Eggplant
A zero energy cool chamber (ZECC) consisting of a brick wall cooler and a storage container made of new materials has been developed. The ZECC requires no electric energy. The brick wall cooler made
Changes in cell wall polysaccharide of harvested peach fruit during storage.
TLDR
The results suggested that softening of harvested peach fruit involved the solubilization and degradation of side chains of pectin and CWM-residue fraction, which were probably due to the increased activities of cell wall polysaccharide-related enzymes.
Tomatine, chlorophyll, β-carotene and lycopene content in tomatoes during growth and maturation
TLDR
The results show that chlorophyll and tomatine concentrations decrease rapidly during the growth of the tomatoes, and β-carotene and lycopene levels are low in immature and high in mature tomatoes.
