Good Practice for assuring the post-harvest quality of exotic tree fruit crops produced in Jamaica


The training guide is designed to serve as a learning and training resource for practitioners and trainers respectively, working on the post-harvest management of non-traditional tree fruit crops. The guide describes general post-harvest handling principles applicable to horticultural crops and documents good post-harvest handling practice for exotic fruit produced in Jamaica. It is hoped that the guide will stimulate improvements in the supply chains for exotic fruit in Jamaica, leading to safer produce of higher quality and to better economic returns for small-scale producers.
