Abstract:

The mechanism of chilling injury in relation to postharvest technology of fruit and vegetable during cold storage is an important scientific and technical issue in postharvest research field. The occurrence of chilling injury of fruit and vegetable during cold storage is an active process of combined internal factors and external environmental conditions. In recent years, with the application of modern molecular biology technology and the research result obtained from the model plant (Arabidopsis thaliana), the regulation mechanism and prevention technology of chilling injury of harvested fruit and vegetable during cold storage have been investigated in-depth. This article reviews the recent advances in the physiological and molecular bases of chilling injury in relation to postharvest technology, focuses on the role of energy status in regulating chilling injury, emphasizes the application of biotechnology in preventing chilling injury, and discusss the future development based on the chilling injury and its control technology of fruit and vegetable during cold storage.

Key words: fruit, vegetable, chilling injury, postharvest, handling
