Stone fruits are highly perishable due to their sensitivity to ethylene which limit their domestic and international trade. Different formulations of the anti-ethylene compounds 1H-cyclopropabenzene and 1H-cyclopropa[b]naphthalene were investigated to manage ethylene, extend postharvest life and maintain fruit quality. Fumigation and spray solutions containing ethanol prevented the deleterious effects of ethylene and maintained postharvest fruit quality of stone fruits. The development of spray solutions will allow these compounds to be used in future open-field applications.

(2016)Ripening of mango fruit is characterized by softening of flesh which limits its shelf life. 1-MCP is nontoxic gas that delays fruit softening and improves quality of several fruit. Therefore, the role of 1-MCP in regulating ...
