To extend shelf life of mulberry fruits, usually expensive freeze drying of freezing process is required. In this study an economic to multipurpose agricultural products dryers with mulberry dryer and technique was developed to reduce postharvest processing cost. Fuel and electricity consumption for drying were lowest when drying temperature was . And various drying conditions (fuel 3 hrs, heat 1 hr, room temperature air velocity 51 hrs) of the developed dryer were analyzed to improve drying performance. Dried mulberry fruits had dark brown color and marketable high quality explain the semi-dried characteristics.
