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.
