Skin discoloration in guava during transportation


I am working on post harvest handling of guava. I am experiencing the problem of skin discoloration in guava during transportation. Do you have information on this topic? (P.M.)


Skin discoloration is often due to physical damage (abrasions) followed by water loss. Internal flesh browning may result from impact bruising, heat damage while on the tree, or chilling injury if exposed to temperatures below 10C during postharvest handling.
