Abstract: In the experiments reported in this bulletin a study was made of the effect of cold storage on star apple (Chrysophyllum cainito), avocado, fig, papaya, water lemon (Passiflora laurifolia), strawberry guava, pineapple, and mango, and also upon the eggs and larvae of Mediterranean fruit fly in these fruits. It was considered important to determine the degree of refrigeration and length of time required to kill this pest, particularly in mangos and avocados.
