RESEARCH ON THE STORAGE OF POMEGRANATE (CV. GÖK BAHÇE) UNDER DIFFERENT CONDITIONS
The experiment was laid out in factorial design and parameters like the respiration ratio, weight losses, titreable acidity (citric acid), total soluble solid content and vitamin C were measured every months in order to determine the economic storage period.
As the results it was found out that the fruits stored at 10°C with the Plantquard+Thiabenzadole applications could be stored one month long while with Plantquard and Thiabenzadole applications at 10°C a storage period of two months could be enabled economically. At 5°C the fruits could be stored for months long in all applications but for "Gök Bahçe" pomegranate variety it was observed that the period of three months resulted in better quality characteristics of the fruits.
