Abstract:

the aimed of this work was to investigate the effects of maturity stages on the physicochemical characteristics of bilimbi (averrhoa bilimbi l.) which were cultivated in recife-pe. during one year, the fruits were harvested from five different trees (unidentified variety) in mature and half-mature stages. they were analysed on total soluble solids (tss), oxalic acid and vitamin c. ripe fruits had the highest levels of tss and vitamin c and lowest levels of oxalic acid, independently of weather conditions. the results showed that maturity stage influenced on physicochemical characteristics of bilimbi fruits.
