Summary

Post-harvest decay are responsible of many damages in organic and non organic farming. Protection techniques in orchards under organic farming standards are not sufficient yet. Fruit dipping in hot water (50°C) for 1 to 3 minutes give nevertheless very promising results, with a very high efficacy level, and a perspective of low pesticide residue level. Several years of trials, with many varieties and treatment conditions showed regular efficacy, and very few burst cases. Still, treatment effect on fruit quality (firmness, sugar rate...) has to be better assessed. Also, the dipping machine has to be engineered and experimented according to growers expectations.
Key words : stone fruits, post harvest decay, organic farming, hot water treatment, conservation
