PENGARUH PENYIMPANAN DINGIN DAN JENIS BAHAN PENGEMAS TERHADAP MUTU FISIK BUAH TOMAT (SOLANUM LYCOPERSICUM)

ABSTRACT: Tomatoes are kept cool will changes that reduce the quality as heavy shrinkage, discoloration and texture changes. Packaging modifications are expected to control the quality changes. This study aimed to determine changes in the physical quality of tomato fruits during cold storage, and to know the effect of using of HDPE plastic, wrap plastic (HDPE), and newsprint in tomatoes during cold storage. The changes in tomatoes during cold storage are the occurrence of heavy shrinkage, changes into a darker red color, and texture increasingly softened. Modifications packaging during cold storage helps maintain some physical quality parameters of tomatoes
