Breeding for Low Oxalate Content and Improvement of Postharvest Technology for Carambola
In Taiwan, the commercial production area of carambola is only 1700 ha, but the fruit is very important in exporting. Carambola fruit has been reported to contain neurotoxins that cause convulsions, hiccups, or death in uremic patient, and prolong barbiturate-induced sleeping time in rates. Carambola contains a large quantity of oxalate, which also can induced depression of cerebral function and seizures. This study was conducted to breed a low oxalate content cultivar. During exporting, the loss caused by water loss, discolor, and quarantine treatment is seriously high. So, the other objection in this study is improvement of postharvest handling methods.
