Spikes of gladiolus cv. White Prosperity were harvested at four stages of floret development viz., S1- tight bud stage (when 1-2 basal florets showed color); S2-when 5-7 florets showed color; S3- when basal floret was half open; and S4- when one basal floret was fully open. The spikes were subjected to wet refrigerated storage at 4±0.50C for 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 days. Increase in storage duration hastened opening of the basal floret, increased vase life and per cent opening of florets on the… CONTINUE READING
