Abstract

Badami (Alphonso) mangoes were dipped in I'7-2'7% aqueous emulsions of a fungicidal wax containing 5%of o-phenylphenol* and after drying in a current of hot air the fruit was stored at 79-86" F and R.H. 55-87%. The treatment was found to lessen the physiological losses in weight, increase the retentions of vitamin C and moisture. delay ripening, decrease the percentage wastage and increase the storage life of the fruit.
