Abstract

Thymus capitatusessential oil was employed as vapour in postharverst to reduceBotrys cinereagrey mould in mandarin fruits. The latter were sprayerd with 105spores/ml suspension, placed in 15-litre desiccators at 25°C and fumigated under vacuum conditions at varying concentrations of thyme oil. The desiccators were kept for 24 h and then the fruit rinse water was plated in Petri dishes to test spore viability. The results showed that the untreated control rinse water exhibited a high rate of fungus growth whereas the water from the treated fruit registered a significant reduction of fungal growth. SEM observations indicated that the thyme oil injured fungus hyphae.
