Extending the shelf life of fresh durian (Durio zibethinus)

, : Extending the shelf life of fresh durian (Durio zibethinus). ASEAN Food Journal 5(3): 117-119

Ripe durians collected after they have fallen to the ground undergo dehiscence within 3 days of ripening. In a preliminary study to investigate methods of preventing dehiscence, 300 ripe fruits subjected to 5 treatments were stored at ambient temperature or at 8 degrees C. The treatments consisted of a control, mechanical tying of the fruits, storage in moist sawdust, packing in loose sealed LDPE (low density polyethylene), and shrinkwrapping in a double layer of LDPE.

A fiber-optic temperature sensor by using a multi-cladding special fiber is presented. It works on the basis of leaky mode resonance from fiber core to outer cladding. With the thin-thickness inner cladding, the cladding mode is strongly excited a...

A number of root and root hair traits have been proposed as important for nutrient acquisition. However, there is still a need for knowledge on which traits are most important in determining macro- and micronutrient uptake at low soil fertility. T...
