Abstract

Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) is susceptible to postharvest decay, and thus its storage and shelf life are limited. Thirty-one aquatic yeasts isolated from different regions were tested by the dual culture method to assess their potential to control gray mold of strawberry fruit, and the...

Abstract

Raspberries are highly perishable and have a short storage life. To extend its storage life, we evaluated the impact of preharvest melatonin (MEL) application (0, 50, 100, 200 µmol L-1), three days before harvest, on the activities of oxidative and antioxidative enzymes and quality attributes in...
