Shamim Ara Begum, M.A. Rahim, M.A. Haider and M.A. Kader

Abstract:
The experiment was carried out to study the shelf life of guava under different post harvest treatments. Qualities of fruits of different varieties decreased with the advancement of storage duration and most were found to lose their marketability at the later stage except Kazi and Swarupkathi. In case of wrapping materials, white and black perforated polythene bags were better in on season for retaining marketability of guava fruits as compared with other treatments. Considering combined effect of variety and wrapping materials, fruits of the Kazi showed the longer duration of marketability among 10 varieties with all treatments. Weight loss of different guava varieties increased with increasing storage duration. Variety Kazi showed the lowest percentage of weight loss. In case of wrapping materials, black and white perforated polythene bags gave minimum weight loss. Based on combined effect of variety and wrapping materials, the variety Kazi showed minimum weight loss among 10 varieties in all wrapping treatments.
