Pg. 36-38 Control of Post-Harvest Decay and Browning of Litchi Fruit by Sodium Metabisulphite and Low pH Dips – An Update

Fruit of cultivars Mauritius and Madras were treated experimentally and semi-commercially with a sodium metabisulphite dip, followed by low pH dips. Disease incidence, browning, colour and taste of fruit of different treatments were compared. Sodium metabisulphite gave the best experimental results for both cultivars, as well as semicommercially on Mauritius fruit, but was disappointing semi-commercially on Madras fruit (probably due to poor fruit quality).
