Postharvest Physiology and Quality of Gai-Lan (Brassica Oleracea var. Alboglabra) and Choi-Sum (Brassica Rapa subsp. Parachinensis)
Postharvest quality changes of gai-lan (Brassica oleracea var. alboglabra) and choisum (Brassica rapa subsp. parachinensis) are similar to those observed in other cool-season Brassica vegetables. For gai-lan, average respiration rates were 8, 10 and 29 μl CO2/g-h at 0°, 5° and 10°C, respectively; for choi-sum the corresponding rates were 5, 8, and 17 μl CO2/g-h. Ethylene production by both products was <0.1 and <0.3 nl/g-h at 0° and 10°C, respectively.
