Abstract

An experiment was carried out to study the changes in chemical composition of mango as influenced by low temperature storage, at the laboratories of the Department of Horticulture and Biochemistry, and the Central laboratory of the Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh during the period from July 2005 to September 2005. The experiment consisted of four varieties of mango, viz, Langra, Kalibhog, Laksmanbhog and Fazli, and 5 storage temperatures, viz 9, 11, 13 and 15C including a control (ambient temperature), was laid out in the completely randomized design with three replications. The results revealed that 13C storage temperature gave reasonably expectable quality attributes like titratable acidity, total sugar, vitamin C content, total soluble solid (%brix) content and pH of mago pulp. Longer shelf life (28 days) was observed at 9C and 11C (26.33 days), but the above mentioned quality attributes of the mango were not in acceptable range.
