ISHS Acta Horticulturae 269: Symposium on Tropical Fruit in International Trade

QUALITY OF "CHANEE" DURIAN (DURIO ZIBETHINUS L.) STORED AT 5°C

Authors:   T. Romphophak, S. Palakul
Abstract:
Quality of mature durians cv. "Chanee" stored for up to 3 weeks at 5°C were evaluated weekly. Fruit treated with CaC2 for 1 day before storage, and untreated durian behaved similarly. Pulp quality remained unchanged at 5°C, but fruit lost their ability to convert starch to sugar after 1 week in storage. Pulp softening continued for the 3 weeks of storage. Visible chilling injury symptoms were observed within 2 weeks as black discoloration of durian surface, especially the groove between thorns. These result was in contrast with earlier reports claiming that durians could be kept at 4–6°C for up to 7 weeks.
