Abstract

Stem-end rot (Lasiodiplodia theobromae) and anthracnose (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides) are major postharvest diseases in avocado that cause severe postharvest losses throughout the supply chain. One of the strategies to reduce development of such decay agents resides in the application of...

Abstract

Postharvest strawberries (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) were coated either by the layer-by-layer (LBL) electrostatic deposition, based on chitosan and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), or coated by 1% chitosan. Results suggested that LBL edible coating was significantly effective at inhibiting the loss...

Abstract

Litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) is an important subtropical fruit of high commercial value. However, after harvesting of fruits rapid pericarp browning and degradation during storage reduce the market value. Generally, 20-30% postharvest loss of litchi is assumed and it may increase up to 50% also...
