Abstract
Freshly harvested, well matured sapota fruits of var. Cricket Ball. were subjected to different post harvest treatments viz., 50µ LDPE (T1), 75 µ LDPE (T2), 100 µ LDPE (T3), and control (T4) with 3 replications in Factorial CRD design and stored in ambient condition (Temp: minimum 270C, maximum 380C, and RH: 85-90%). Observations were recorded on physiological loss of weight (%), TSS (⁰Brix), titratable acidity (%), reducing sugar (%), Total sugar (%), TSS: Acid ratio (%) and organoleptic quality at three days intervals. The results revealed that sapota var. Cricket Ball fruits packed in 75µLDPE (T2) proved to be the best treatments followed by 100µLDPE (T3) among all the treatments under ambient condition which improves the quality and storability of fruits and also reduced the post–harvest losses without adversely affecting the fruit quality of sapota. As the 75µLDPE (T3) shows the lowest PLW (%), lowest titratable acidity (%), and highest TSS (⁰Brix), reducing sugar (%), total sugar (%), TSS: Acid ratio (%), and Organoleptic quality compare to other treatments. In general, PLW (%) and titratable acidity (%) continuously decreased during storage while, reducing sugar (%) and total sugar (%) increased up to 6th day of storage; there after it steadily decreased during subsequent period of storage. Organoleptic rating revealed superiority of T2 and T3 over other treatments while the control fruits were not acceptable on 9th day
