Turgidity is a sign quinon of freshness of vegetables and fruits. The application of various concentrations of natural coater to grape fruit significantly improves the turgidity and water content of fruits. This will helps to maintain the freshness and shelf life of grape berries. Thus, the application of mucilage as a natural polymers, extracted from the waste flowers, fruits and leaves of these avenue roadside plants would be helpful in maintaining the quality of harvested fruits as well as it might be helpful to reduce the losses caused during post harvest transport.
