perishable commodity, and shipment at low temperature (i.e., 32 °F) is critical for maintaining postharvest quality ( Maxie et al., 1959 ). The shelf life of strawberry fruit is often limited by their high rates of respiration, softening, and water loss

members of the family can be affected by several fruit disorders that negatively affect postharvest fruit quality and harm fruit shelf life ( Blancard et al., 1995 ; Snowdon, 1991 ). The accessions with a good shelf life are mostly found within C . melo

The quality of `Galia' melons (Cucumis melo pv. reticulates) stored in a controlled atmosphere (CA) of 10% CO2 plus 10% O2 with ethylene absorbent (EA) for 14 days at 6C and an additional 6 days at 20C was significantly better than that of control fruit or fruit stored in CA only. Fruit stored in CA plus EA were firmer and exhibited less decay than fruit from the other two treatments.
