Abstract:   (17205 Views)
The Two cultivars of kiwi fruit, Hayward and Abbot, with the desirable quality were harvested on time from Valiabad, a region in Tonekabon (Mazanddaran Provicnce). Fruits were graded and packed in the wooden boxes, cartons and low density polyethylene (LDPE) films, the fruits were cold stored in a proper and constant conditions (T= ±0.5 & RH=90-95%) for a period of 6 months. Samples were taken in completely randomised design from each package for intervals of 30±3 days and during storage (6 months). Chemical characteristics such as the total soluble solids(TSS), titratable acidity as citric acid, dry matter, vitamin C and the Physical characteristics such as yield point (Y.P.), yield point strength (Y.P.S.), penetration force (P.F.) and penetration stress (P.S.) were measured. Statistical analysis was performed with the factorial experiment in an unequal completely randomized design and the means compaired by Duncan multiple range test. The results indicated that, cv, Abbot has shorter shelf life, 4 months, compared to Hayward with 6 months storage period. Hayward contained more dry matter than Abbot throughout the storage period. Total soluble solids of cultivars increased and titrable acidity as citric acid decreased during storage. Vitamin C of Abbot was more than Hayward throughout the storage. Total factors in relation to texture and physical properties decreased by time such texture Hayward cv.after six month storage and in Abbot after four month storage was softer. As the final conclusion, wooden bins packaging for longer storage and plastic packaging for monotonous rippening of kiwifruit was the best in compared with other packaging.
