“Okitsu” satsuma fruits, harvested the 20th of October, before
being stored for 1 month in sheH-life condition (20°C and 70-75%
RH) were first dipped in an emulsion containing 500 ppm of
thiabendazole (TBZ) or left untreated, and then either
nonwrapped or wrapped in groups of 8 with two different plastic
films (Cryovac MD and MY, respectively 19mm and 20mm
thickness). In-package atmosphere evolution (CO2 and O2) and
respiration rate of nonwrapped fruits were monitored daily. In
addition at 10-day intervals fruit were inspected for decay, overall
appearance, weight loss, and respiration rate and internai
atmosphere of wrapped fruits was measured either at the mo
ment of the removal of the film or the day after. An informai panel
test of 7 technicians also tasted the fruits for sensory evaluation.
