Abstract: An investigation on the extension of storage life of winter crop of Coorg Mandarins was made using skin coatings with waxol and ‘Tal Prolong’, combined with or without packing in ventilated polythene bags and stored in cartons. The effect of treatments on physiological losses in weight, physicochemical changes, shelf life spoilage and organoleptic quality was observed during the storage period of 4 weeks, at ambient conditions. Packing the fruits in ventilated polythene bags and storing in cartons reduced the moisture loss significantly and extended the shelf life. Skin coating with ‘Tal Prolong’ at 1% and 2% was not as effective as 3% Waxol treatment in retaining the freshness of the fruit. There was no significant effect on the chemical on the chemical composition like juice content, TSS, Vitamin C, and sugar content due to treatments. Organoleptic evaluation of fruits revealed that waxol treated fruits packed in polythene bags were the best after 20 days of storage at room temperature.
