NUNES, Elisângela Elena et al. Shelf-life of peaches 'Aurora 2' stored in modified atmosphere and refrigeration. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.3, pp.438-440. ISSN 0100-2945.

The goal of the present work was to evaluate the use of starch film of cassava and polyethylene package in postharvest quality maintenance of peaches 'Aurora 2' stored under refrigeration (9 + 1ºC e 90 + 5% RH) for 10 days. This experiment was carried out in DCA/Ufla, Lavras, MG. The film at the concentration of 3% showed higher mass loss and compromising the final quality, with shelf-life only for 6 days. The fruits packed with polyethylene bags presented reduction of mass loss and firmness maintenance due to pectin solubilization decrease.

Keywords : Prunus persica (L.) Batsch; postharvest; starch film of cassava; polyethylene.
