Rapid postharvest browning of litchi fruit pericarp is the result of polyphenol oxidase activity (Underhill and Critchley, , Jiang and Fu, , Jiang, , . Pericarp browning is the major post-harvest problem of litchi (Litchi chinensisSonn) fruit, resulting in reduced commercial value of the fruit. Mature lychee (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) fruit were heat-treated at 60C for 10 min to study heat-induced pericarp browning. Polyphenol oxidase (EC ).
