In this study, the effect of 1-MCP on physico-chemical changes of red pitaya during storage at 10c were determined. Fruits harvested at 30 days after anthesis were treated with 1-MCP (0,500 and 1000 nL\L)for 4 h and stored at 10c. Changes in fruit colour, firmness, soluble solids concentration (SSC) and titratable acidity (TA) were monitored at 0.7, 14, 21 and 28 days of storage. There were significant changes in peel L*,C* and h values of control and 1000nL/L1-MCP-treated fruits. However… CONTINUE READING
