Tomatoes at breaker and pink stage maturities were coated with comzein film. Color, weight and firmness changes and sensory quality were compared with noncoated tomatoes during storage at 21°C. Corn‐zein fdm delayed color change and loss of firmness and weight during storage. Shelf life was extended by 6 days with film coatings as determined by sensory evaluation.
