Fruits were analysed for qualityl characteristics after transport. The results showed that damage due to bruising in plastic crates and CFB boxes were 16.66% whereas in wooden boxes it was 33.33%. The PLW (%) were 9.86, 10.56 and 5.47 respectively in papaya packed in CFB boxes, plastic crates and wooden boxes on reaching edible ripe stage in two days after transport. Fruits packed in CFB boxes are firmer (2.69%) compared to plastic crates (2.052%) and wooden boxes(1.91%) on reaching edible ripe stage in two days after transport.
