Prestorage treatments to prevent fruit skin blackening during cold storage of Japanese pear 'Shingo' ('Niitaka')


, : Prestorage treatments to prevent fruit skin blackening during cold storage of Japanese pear 'Shingo' ('Niitaka'). Journal of the Korean Society for Horticultural Science 36(2): 218-223

Shingo pears harvested on 17, 22 and 29 Sep. and on 6 and 13 Oct., were wrapped in 0.03-mm LDPE film and placed in cold storage for up to 35 days. Fruits harvested in Sep. exhibited the least skin blackening. The incidence of skin blackening was also reduced following delayed cooling of the harvested fruits; delaying storage for 10-15 days in the orchard was most effective, and fruits could be stored for 80 days without a significant drop in quality (<10% of fruits with black skin).
