Advances in postharvest handling of citrus fruit

Code: 9781786765314
John Golding and John Archer, New South Wales Department of Primary Industries and University of Newcastle, Australia

Chapter synopsis: Consumers are the driving major trends in both fresh citrus production, and postharvest handling, storage and distribution. Both consumers and retailers are driving changes in different citrus types (such as increases in ‘soft’ citrus types) and postharvest management (such as reduced postharvest chemical use, organics, sustainability etc.). This chapter outlines the challenges of storing and handling citrus fruit postharvest, dealing with issues such as degreening, physiological storage disorders and chilling injuries. The chapter examines postharvest management techniques to reduce chilling injury symptoms, as well as considering food safety and market access. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area.
