Title: Effect of harvesting method on quality and shelflife of mango fruits
Author: Abu-Goukh, Abu-Bakr Ali
Abstract: Instead of letting the fruits fall to the ground, mangoes were harvested by an improved technique. Fruits were snapped off the tree with a pole equipped with a long cloth sleeve held open by a ring. When the pedicel was severed, the fruit dropped into the bag and slid smoothly down to be received by the picker. The improved method greatly improved fruit quality, reduced post-harvest losses and extended the shelf-life.
