Effect of time interval between harvesting and low temp. storage on bananas of varying maturities, rate of cooling of bananas in shipholds and its effect on quality, effect of sub-optimal temp. on incidence of chilling in bananas, and ripening studies on cold stored bananas were investigated. It was found that green banana hands, pulp to peel ratio 1 to 1.2 stored in cartons for 30, 48-60 and 72 h after harvest, were green and fresh for 27, 26 and 25 days respectively at 55 degree F and 85% RH. Those with a ratio greater than 1.2 could not be stored green greater than 20 days. full bananas loaded into shiphold within 60 h of harvesting and cooled to 60 degree F within 12 h gave a better quality product. Ships with vertical cold air flow cooled bananas quicker than horizontal systems. full green bananas developed chilling injury in 3, 22, 36 and 48-60 h, 7 days and 23 days when exposed to 23-32 degree F, 33 degree F, 37 degree F, 42 degree F, 48 degree F and 54 degree F respectively. Bananas (pulp to peel ratio 1.10-1.50) cold stored for 21 days and ripened within 10 days at 69-70 degree F, were acceptable in colour, taste and flavour after smoking. Blemishes increased with increasing maturity at harvest.
