Abstract:

Orchids are consistently ranked among the best sellers in the global potted plant trade and also comprise c. 10% of all fresh cut flowers traded internationally. The orchids have taken a significant position in cut flower industry due to its attractiveness, long shelf life, high productivity, right season of bloom, and easy packing and transportation but lack a complete information module starting from pre-harvest to harvest and subsequently postharvest techniques including cooling, pulsing, impregnation, bud opening, holding solutions, storage, packaging, drying and transportation of different commercial genera of orchids. In the present investigation, the works on post-harvest technologies of cut spikes and florets of different orchid genera and species have been carried out.
