Manipulation of Fruit Ripening, Quality and Storage Life in Pome Fruits Using Novel Ethylene Antagonists
MetadataShow full item record
Ethylene antagonists offer an effective way to prevent the deleterious effects of ethylene in climacteric fruits. 1-Methylcyclopropene, 1-hexylcyclopropene, (S)-(-)- limonene and trans-cinnamaldehyde were evaluated as ethylene antagonist to extend the storage life of apple and pear fruits. 1-Methylcyclopropene was most efficient followed by 1-HCP, (S)-(-)-limonene and trans-cinnamaldehyde in suppressing and delaying climacteric ethylene production, extending cold and controlled atmosphere storage life and maintaining fruit quality depending upon cultivar and storage period.
