Abstract: The postharvest quality of Jew’s mallow was tested using two types of plastic liners and two temperatures, 4ºC and 10ºC. The plastic liners were normally sealed low density polyethylene and modified atmosphere package. Six quality parameters (weight loss, chlorophyll content, decay level, dryness level, yellowing level and chilling injury) were studied. It was found that Jew’s mallow leaves had a longer shelf life at 4ºC than at 10ºC. Modified atmosphere package liner showed a good result with respect to decay level. The shelf life was two weeks.
