Abstract

Ready-to-eat fruits with fresh-like quality containing only natural ingredients are desired by consumers. Lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) is a native plant of subtropical rain forests in Queensland, Australia. Its essential oil (EO) has been demonstrated to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It was found in our previous study that lemon myrtle EO could extend the shelf life and enhance the natural flavor of freshcut
papaya. In this study, we investigated the effects of lemon myrtle EO on the quality and sensorial characteristics of freshcut cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon and pineapple fruits.
