Optimum Transport Conditions
Optimum Relative Humidity: 85-90%
Benefits of CA: Low О2can delay ripening. Elevated CO2maintains firmness. 5% O2+ 5% CO2is often used during marine transport of mangoes.
Benefits of Ethylene Removal: Mangoes are climacteric fruits and are sensitive to ethylene.
Special Treatments Before Shipping: Heat treatments may be used to reduce anthracnose or for quarantine insect control.
Varietal Differences: Varieties differ in their sensitivity to chilling injury. Irwin and Tommy Atkins can be kept at 10°C for up to 3 weeks. Haden and Keitt will be injured at this temperature. Less ripe fruit are more sensitive to chilling injury than are more ripe fruit. Chilling injury is manifested as a grayish scaldlike discoloration of the skin, often accompanied by surface pitting, off-flavors and uneven ripening. Most varieties, when unripe, will be injured if held at less than 10°C. Many varieties grown in Southeast Asia are sensitive to low O2(less than 5%). Such varieties should be shipped at 5- 7% O2.
Mixed Loads: Do not ship with ethylene producing commodities.
Cautions: O2less than 2% (less than 5% for SE Asia-grown varieties) can cause off-flavors and skin discoloration. CO2greater than 10% can cause softening, off-flavors and grayish flesh color.
