9780851992105: Postharvest Physiology and Storage of Tropical and Subtropical Fruits

Tropical and subtropical fruits are becoming more important food items in countries where they are produced and also in an increasing number of importing countries in non-tropical zones. For many of the countries where they are grown these crops represent one of the primary ways of earning valuable foreign exchange. In the last few years, fruit production in most tropical and subtropical countries of the world has increased substantially, and most of the fruits grown in these regions now have established and growing markets in North America and Europe.

The transport of tropical and subtropical fruits from areas of production to markets in temperate zones raises particular postharvest storage issues, while postharvest losses in the tropics themselves can be considerable. Whilst there are several texts addressing the postharvest needs of temperate fruits, there has not until now been a comprehensive volume dealing with tropical and subtropical fruits. This volume is the first book to deal with the postharvest storage, physiology and conservation of all of the economically important tropical and subtropical fruits. Contributors include leading research workers from throughout the world, including Europe, North, Central and South America, Australia, New Zealand, East and Southeast Asia and the Middle East. The resultant work represents a substantial contribution to this important and fast developing area. The book is essential reading for all horticultural researchers and students working with these crops and for growers, exporters and importers within the industries concerned with tropical and subtropical fruits.

Review:


"This book is a welcome addition to sources of information on postharvest biology and technology of subtropical and tropical fruits, which have become very important in international distribution and marketing. . . .Each chapter includes information on harvest maturity, postharvest physiology, ripening, storage, physiological disorders, postharvest pathology, postharvest entomology, and a list of references. . . .It can also be used as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses on postharvest biology and technology of tropical and subtropical fruits." --Perishables Handling Quarterly


"This book is a welcome addition to sources of information on postharvest biology and technology of subtropical and tropical fruits, which have become very important in international distribution and marketing. This book is organized into 22 chapters, each written by one or more experts from many countries. . . . Each chapter includes information on the origin of the fruit, harvest maturity, postharvest physiology, ripening, storage, physiological disorders, postharvest pathology, postharvest entomology, and an extensive list of references for further reading. . . . This book is a very good source of information for those who are involved in research, extension, and marketing of tropical and subtropical fruits. It can also be used as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses on postharvest biology and technology of subtropical and tropical fruits."--The Quarterly Review of Biology


"The text begins with a very brief general overview of postharvest handling of tropical and subtropical crops. This is followed by individual chapters that critique the current state of understanding of the postharvest physiology and handling of citrus, bananas and plantains, mango, pineapple, guava, papaya, litchi, kiwifruit, olive, fig, cherimoya, carambola, rambutan, durian, longan, breadfruit, pomegranate, passion fruit, sapota, loquat, and jujube. . . . The text is a worthy addition to science libraries and the personal reference sources of anyone interested in the postharvest physiology and handling of tropical and subtropical fruit. The text provides a concise, well-written overview of our current knowledge of these crops."--HortScience
