Perubahan fisiologi dan biokimia semasa penyimpanan dan kemasakan buah betik


M. N. Latifah, Z. M. Ali dan H. Lazan


Physiological and biochemical changes in packed and unpacked papaya (Carica papaya L. cv. Eksotika) fruit were studied during storage at 10 0C for 6 weeks and upon exposure to ambient temperature (25–28 °C) after 2, 4 and 6-week storage periods. Respiration rates and ethylene production of unpacked fruit were always higher than the packed fruit during storage at 10 °C. A similar trend was shown when the fruit were exposed to ambient temperature. Level of internal ethylene, 1-aminocyclopropane carboxylic acid (ACC), activity of ACC synthase and ACC oxidase appeared to be affected by the stage of ripening and degree of fruit injury.
