Pg. 25-28 Maintaining Market Quality of Litchis Overseas Without SO2

Gas packaging in 5, 10 and 20 per cent Freshpak® , controlled both browning and decay in fresh litchis – cultivars Mauritius and Madras – stored for 28 days at 1°C plus a further three days at 20°C. However, the skin turned brown once fruit were removed from the packaging after the 31-day storage period. Litchis that were gamma-irradiated were found to be more susceptible to decay development than untreated fruit.
