Pg. 31-32 Control of Post-Harvest Decay and Browning of Litchi Fruit by Sodium Metabisulphite and Low pH Dips

Fruit were treated with a sodium metabisulphite dip on its own, as well as combined with hydrochloric acid dips, vitafilm, Semperfresh G and modified atmosphere packaging. The effect of the treatments on post-harvest disease, browning, colour, and taste was evaluated. Sodium metabisulphite dip followed by hydrochloric acid dips or Vitafilm gave the best results when taking into account all four criteria.
