Abstract

A study was conducted at Postharvest Laboratory in of Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture. The objective of this study is to determine the effect of hydrocooling and hot water treatment on post-harvest physiology of Saba banana. There were five treatments (control, hydrocooling, hydrocooling and hot water treatment, hydrocooling and hot water treatment and hydrocooling, and hot water treatment) tested in Saba banana which each treatment had three replicates. All the samples were stored at refrigerator (13±2°C), room temperature (26±2°C) and outside (30±2°C) in Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture for three weeks duration with seven days interval for data collection. The study found that there treated Saba banana showed significant differences in weight loss percentage (WLP) and total soluble solid(TSS). The total soluble solid showed the control treatment (11.84°Brix) was higher than treated banana. The Saba banana that stored in cold storage (13±2°C) showed a better storage condition for banana compared to room temperature (26±2°C) and outside temperature (30±2°C). The visual appearance score of the banana in cold storage was still acceptable (7.72) compared to the higher storage temperature in 3 weeks storage duration. The result showed that banana kept in cold have longer shelf life.
