Author(s): HA Patel, MJ Patel, PN Kore and Lokesh Yadav
Abstract: An experiment to evaluate pre-harvest spray of different calcium sources on quality and shelf life of sapota fruits cv. Kalipatti was carried out at Department of Horticulture, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand during summer 2016. Pre-harvest (three weeks before harvest) spraying of CaCl2 @ 1.5% improved fruit weight and fruit volume of sapota fruits. While, the spraying of CaCl2 @ 1% found effective for increasing fruit firmness, marketable fruits and shelf life with minimum physiological weight loss and spoilage loss of sapota fruits.
