JIMENES, Isabela Maria; SILVA, Simone Rodrigues da; TEZOTTO-ULIANA, Jaqueline Visioni  e  CANTUARIAS-AVILES, Tatiana. Fruit quality attributes of low chilling requirement ‘Snowchaser’ blueberry cultivated in Brazil. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.1, e-473.  Epub 08-Mar-2018. ISSN 0100-2945.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0100-29452018473.

In Brazil there are still few studies on the post-harvest quality of low-chill blueberry cultivars, which have been recently introduced in the country. ‘Snowchaser’ blueberries were evaluated during a six-day storage period regarding fruit physical and chemical properties, and its antioxidant capacity. During fruit storage there was an increased weight loss and maintenance of some skin color properties such as luminosity (L*) and b*, whereas the values of parameter a* decreased and chroma (C) values increased. The levels of anthocyanins and flavonoids in the pulp increased, as well as the antioxidant activity. Maximum fruit shelf life at room temperature was six days without reduction on the antioxidant activity along the period, which is beneficial to consumers’ health.

Palavras-chave : Vaccinium corymbosum; weight loss; color; anthocyanins; flavonoids; antioxidant activity.
