Abstract

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the storage stability of persimmon (Diospyros kaki) fruit .The fresh fruit (controlled) was compared with treated 2% of CaCl2 aqueous solution at Department of Agriculture and Food Technology Karakoram International University Gilgit in January 2012. Evaluation was made for changes in chemical and physical characteristics of the fruit during four storage intervals treated of 2% cacl2 and fresh fruit were subjected to following Physico chemical analysis TSS (0brix), acidity %, ash content and moisture % were determined at four days interval during storage. pH was non-significantly affected during storage intervals, while TSS was recorded to be increased. Acidity % and ash was first increased and then decreased during storage. Fruits kept in cartoon boards showed considerable decrease in pH, TSS (0brix) and acidity % while an increase was observed for moisture content.

Keywords: Persimmon, CaCl2, storage intervals, physicochemical Analysis
