|The important task of any postharvest technology is to be developing methods by which deterioration of produce is restricted as much as possible during the period between harvest and consumption. The regulation of ripening is a crucial important factor to supplying the fruits to consumers with acceptable eating quality. The experiment was arranged with sixteen treatment combinations of irradiation doses (0.00kGy, 0.20kGy, 0.40kGy and 0.60kGy) and similar to storage temperature (Ambient at 272 o C and 60-70% RH, 9 0 C and 90% RH, 12 0 C and 90% RH and Control atmospheric (CA) storage (12 0 C, O 2 2%, CO 2 3% and RH 90%). The fruits were exposed to gamma radiation for different doses from the source of 60 Co at ISOMED plant of Sir Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai (India). The two years collective data indicated that the fruits irradiated with 0.40kGy gamma rays recorded significantly minimum per cent reduction in physiological loss in weight, reduced ripening per cent, increased marketability of fruits and maximum average days to ripening and shelf life of fruits. Similar pattern were noticed when fruits kept at 9 0 C storage temperature. The combined effect of 0.40kGy gamma rays irradiation and 9 0 C storage temperature recorded maximum reduction in the physiological loss in weight, reduced ripening, increased marketability of fruits throughout the storage period and maximum shelf life. Suggestions are made for maximizing storage potential by use of irradiation and adequate storage facilities for qualitative and hygiene produces.|
