Title: Effect of Harvesting Method on Quality and Storability of Dry Dates in Sudan
Author: Abu-Goukh, Abu-Bakr A.; Shamir, Adil E.; El Balla, Mustafa M.
Abstract: Harvesting Barakawi and Gondeila dates by climbing the palm and lowering the bunch by rope, rather than throwing it to the ground, reduced the proportion of shattered fruits to 2.1 from 97.3% and fruits that lost perianths to 6.4 from 72.1%. The improved method kept the Barakawi dates completely free from insect infestation for 4 months and Gondeila for 2 months of storage at ambient conditions. Insect infestation after 12 months of storage was 93.0% in Gondeila, significantly higher than 56.2% in Barakawi.
