Post-harvest quality of fresh-marketed tomatoes as a function of harvest periods

Abstract: Losses on tomato business chain start at harvest, a two-months period. At the beginning of the harvest, fruits concentrate at the basal part of the plant, then in the middle, and finally at the top, and undergo changes in diameter and maturity indexes as harvest progresses. The aim of this work was to evaluate the impact of handling at three different periods: (I) 15 days, (II) 30 days, and (III) 45 days after the beginning of harvest. Tomatoes were ordinarily grown and harvested in to bamboo baskets, and tran… Show more

“…The relationship between total soluble solids and titrable acidity known as maturity index was determined in accord to Casierra-Posada & Aguilar-Avendaño [21]. Weight loss was determined in accord to Ferreira et al [22] by the percent relation between initial and final weight of the fruit, every three days, from the harvest day to the end of the storage period. To measure the juice content of a fruit, a representative sample of fruit is taken and then the juice extracted.…”

“…En diferentes estudios se busca determinar la influencia del grado de maduración al momento de la cosecha sobre las características fisicoquímicas de los frutos (Casasierra-Posada y Aguilar-Avendaño, 2008). Se han encontrado diferencias en el tiempo comprendido entre el tiempo de corte y el de maduración completa, en dependencia con el grado de madurez en el que se cosechan (Ferreira et al, 2005). Los métodos de análisis que se apliquen deben ser sensibles, prácticos y rápidos y deben permitir determinar el ratio para que sea comparable con productos de otra región o variedad.…”
