Book Description :

While products such as bananas, pineapples, kiwifruit and citrus have long been available to consumers in temperate zones, new fruits such as lychee, longan, carambola, and mangosteen are now also entering the market. Confirmation of the health benefits of tropical and subtropical fruit may also promote consumption further. Tropical and subtropical fruits are particularly vulnerable to postharvest losses, and are also transported long distances for sale. Therefore maximising their quality postharvest is essential and there have been many recent advances in this area. Many tropical fruits are processed further into purees, juices and other value-added products, so quality optimisation of processed products is also important. The books cover current state-of-the-art and emerging post-harvest and processing technologies. Volume 1 contains chapters on particular production stages and issues, whereas Volumes 2, 3 and 4 contain chapters focused on particular fruit. Chapters in Volume 4 review the factors affecting the quality of different tropical and subtropical fruits from mangosteen to white sapote. Important issues relevant to each product are discussed, including means of maintaining quality and minimising losses postharvest, recommended storage and transport conditions and processing methods, among other topics. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Volume 4 of Postharvest biology and technology of tropical and subtropical fruits, along with the other volumes in the collection, are essential references both for professionals involved in the postharvest handling and processing of tropical and subtropical fruits and for academics and researchers working in the area.

Book Description :

The world population has been increasing day by day, and demand for food is rising. Despite that, the natural resources are decreasing, and production of food is getting difficult. At the same time, about one-quarter of what is produced never reaches the consumers due to the postharvest losses. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to efficiently handle, store, and utilize produce to be able to feed the world, reduce the use of natural resources, and help to ensure sustainability. At this point, postharvest handling is becoming more important, which is the main determinant of the postharvest losses. Hence, the present book is intended to provide useful and scientific information about postharvest handling of different produce.

Book Description :

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.
