Abstract

Fig is one of the perishable fruits. Its shelf life is hardly a day or two after harvesting. Many attempts have been made for extension of postharvest life of fig fruits viz., low temperature storage, use of dry ice, waxing, controlled atmosphere storage, precooling, fumigation etc. A brief review of literature pertaining to these aspects is presented here.
