The desorption of ethylene dibromide (EDB) residues from fumigated Shamouti citrus fruits is fitted by a single exponential equation at 17 and 22°C, and by an equation with a double exponential term at 5°C. Establishing the rate constant enables calculation of the initial concentration of EDB residues in the peel, thereby obtaining information on conditions during fumigation and on the possibility of peel injury development in the fumigated fruit. Healthy, harvested Shamouti citrus fruit evolve ethylene at a low rate, which is increased by EDB fumigation. Fumigated fruit in which EDB caused peel injury evolved ethylene at a higher rate than fumigated fruit in which peel injuries did not develop. This information could be used for predicting peel injuries and in studies aimed at a better understanding of the processes leading to the development of peel injuries in fumigated citrus fruit.
