Abstract

The fresh ripe kokum fruits were keRt for storage at ambient temperature (13.15–32.5°C, 66.5% RH), cool chamber (14.30–20.30°C, 96% RH) and cold storage (10°C, 85–90% RH) to study their storage behaviour. The results indicated that the ripe kokum fruits could be successfully stored for 16 days in cold storage, 12 days in cool chamber and 10 days at ambient temperature. The rate of change in PLW, TSS, acidity, sugars and ascorbic acid contents of the fruit was found to be slower in cold stored fruits followed by cool chamber
