Abstract:
In this study, the effects of chemical substances applications of Control, Imazalil + Wax, Imazalil, Imazalil + Scholar and Imazalil + Scholar + Propi on preservation and quality characteristics of lemon cultivar 'Kütdiken' were investigated. After application in the study, the lemons were kept at 10°C for 6 months under 90% relative humidity conditions. Fruit samples were taken at intervals of 3 months during the preservation period. Some physical and chemical changes in weight loss (%), soluble solids (%), titratable acidity (%), fruit juice (%), fruit peel color (h°), fruit peel thickness (mm), and decay rate (%) were determined. Lemons treated with Imazalil, Imazalil + Scholar and Imazalil + Scholar + Propi were found to be of better quality at the end of 6 months storage and better protected compared with other applications and Control groups.
