Induction of Chilling Injury in Jicama (Pachyrhizus erosus) Roots Changes in Texture, Color and Phenolics

  Storage of jicama roots at 10 °C resulted in characteristic chill-induced changes in pulp color (decreased L* values and increased chroma) and texture (increased distance to rupture) after 7–14 days. Discoloration or browning of the pulp occurred first in exterior pulp tissue and...
