    Chilling Injury, Physicochemical Properties, and Antioxidant Enzyme Activities of Red Pitahaya (Hylocereus polyrhizus) Fruits under Cold Storage Stress

    Kai Sheng1, Saichao Wei1, Jun Mei1,2,3,4,*, Jing Xie1,2,3,4,*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.90, No.1, pp. 291-305, 2021, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2020.012985

    Abstract Low-temperature storage is extensively used to optimize the postharvest life of various fresh fruits. However, red pitahaya (Hylocereus polyrhizus) fruits are sensitive to chilling injury (CI), which leads to the limitation of low-temperature storage. In this study, red pitahaya fruits were stored at 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10°C, respectively, for 27 days to determine the appropriate storage temperature. During the storage of red pitahaya fruits, storage at 8°C was more effective in suppressing decay and maintaining quality than other low temperatures. Low-temperature (2, 4, and 6°C) storage decreased weight loss (WL) and maintained higher content… More >

    Effect of heat conditioning on chilling injury susceptibility of Persian lime (Citrus latifolia Tanaka)

    Bosquez Molina1 E, J Domínguez Soberanes1, L Perez Flores2, S Bautista Baños3, F Díaz de León Sánchez2, F Rivera-Cabrera2

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.77, pp. 161-174, 2008, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2008.77.161

    Abstract Cold storage is one of the most important technologies used to maintain the postharvest quality of many horticultural commodities. However, cold storage is restricted for Persian lime because of its susceptibility to chilling injury. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of high temperature conditioning on the susceptibility to chilling injury in Persian lime (Citrus latifolia Tanaka). It was harvested in Martínez de la Torre, Veracruz, Mexico, and stored at different refrigeration temperatures. After harvesting, fruits received the following treatments: (1) hot water conditioning (53 °C during 3 min); (2) hot air conditioning More >
