Tropical fruits cannot be stored at low temperatures due to the chilling injury phenomena. With the goal of reducing the chilling injury, we tested 10(-4) and 10(-5) M of methyl jasmonate (MJ) treatment before the storage of red and white cultivars of guava fruits at 5 degrees C for up to 15 days plus two days at 20 degrees C. Every five days, we evaluated… CONTINUE READING
