Abstract

"Lisbon" lemons were divided into groups that were coated, packaged in polyethylene bags with or without a pouch containing KOH, or left unpackaged and uncoated; fruits were then stored at 8°C up to 15 weeks. Packaging significantly reduced weight loss and fruit mantained a fresh appearance. Fruits in bags without KOH showed the highest incidence of decay. In fact, KOH moisture-absorbing capability significantly decreased rots during 5 weeks of storage plus one week of shelf-life, if compared to packaged fruits without KOH. No signs of CI were detected in any treatment. Packaged fruits without KOH revealed the highest concentration of ethanol and acetaldehyde in the juice.
