Abstract

The experiment was carried out to study the shelf life and postharvest quality 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. Four varieties of mango such as Langra, Fazli, Laksmanbhog and Kalibhog were used in the experiment. Low temperatures used in this experiment were 9, 11, 13 and 15C including a control (room temperature). There were significant variations among the varieties and also among the storage temperature treatments in respect of shelf life, pulp to peel ratio, total weight loss and total sugar content. Although longer shelf life was recorded in fruits stored at lower temperatures (9 and 11C), the fruits did not ripen properly at these temperatures even after keeping at room temperature and also the edible qualities of those fruits were not satisfactory. In case of cv. Fazli, the longest shelf life was obtained in fruits stored at 13C which was statistically identical with those stored at 15C.
