This list is prepared as a possible aid to research and extension workers, teachers, and students interested in the general area of postharvest horticulture. It is also expected to be useful to those in industry and to reference librarians. It should serve as a starting point for the development of background information on harvesting, handling and storage of horticultural commodities and on their physiology, composition and quality.
The references are classified into 16 sections of subject matter. Arrangement within each section is by author; enumeration of the citations is by section. Each citation was arbitrarily placed under a given section but is cross-referenced under additional sections.
Originally published in 1974, then revised every few years this document includes published literature up to 2014. The titles included represent a somewhat arbitrary selection with emphasis on relatively current publications in English. Useful and important citations may have been overlooked. We would appreciate information concerning errors or omissions, please send them to email@example.com.
We wish to express our appreciation to the many individuals who reviewed the list and made useful suggestions, especially our colleagues in the UC Postharvest Group.
