Cold storage at either 1.1°or SoCwas tested as a quarantine treatment method for mature larvae of the Caribbean fruit fly, Anastrepha suspense (Loew), in carambolas, Averrhoa carambola (L.). 'Arkin' carambolas were infested in an outdoor fly cage and held at either 1.1OCor soc. At 1.1°C, probit 9 mortality was estimated to occur at 13.6 d and at SOCat 21.1 d. Carambolas cooled rapidly under cold storage (from 240C to So Cin approximately 6 h) and tolerated IS d at 1.1OCwith little loss of marketability.
