FRANCISCO, Maria Sueli et al. Efect of management conditions on the sensory characteristics of banana (Musa spp.) cv. Pacovan. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.2, pp.313-317. ISSN 0100-2945.

The effect of four management conditions on the acceptance of 'Pacovan'banana was assessed. The fruits were harvested at ideal physiological maturity for storage in four farms in the municipality of Bananeiras - PB, according to a fully randomized design. Treatments were identified as P1: Irrigation + chemical and organic fertilization + chemical control of weeds; P2: manual control of weeds; P3: irrigation + chemical fertilization + manual control of weeds; P4: manual and chemical control of weeds. Five bunches of bananas were harvested in each farm and submitted to cooling with calcium carbide for 12 hours for uniform ripening. After this period, fruits were kept at room temperature until full maturation. The sensory panel was composed of 62 untrained judges, with mean age of 18 years. Attributes of aroma, flavor, texture and pulp color were assessed through acceptance test using a 9-point hedonic scale. The purchase intention test used a 5-point structured scale. The samples were presented to panelists in the form of slices with thickness of approximately 1.5 cm. Results were submitted to analysis of variance (ANOVA) and means were compared by the Tukey test at 5% probability. For all attributes, values ranged from 7.34 to 7.68, in the hedonic scale between terms 'liked moderately'and 'liked very much'. As for the purchase intention, acceptance percentages were 74.19, 72.58, 72.58 and 70.97% respectively for P1, P2, P3 and P4. The management condition did not influence the acceptance of 'Pacovan' banana, and the fruits were considered by the judges as a product of good acceptance.
