But have you noticed off late that the shiny yellow bananas, papayas and mangoes you get home, turn out to be only partially ripe and not so tasty. Also, if you overdose on them, they not only cause stomach upset but even mouth ulcers and throat infections.

  • Use of chemical in ripening the fruit must be banned. Fruit is it self a generator of Etheline so if we provide it a normal CA controlled atmosphere it can increase its shelf life and gives us a pure taste as it ripens on the tree. The chemical application to ripen it is not less then a rape with fruit it damages its skin. shelf life and taste. It also increases the post harvest loses by decreasing its shelf life with chemical application. CA technology should be promoted in our region with our local made low cost equipment and analyzers
