Kiwifruits have limited shelf life under ambient conditions. However, it is necessary to extend its life so as to make it available for longer time in the market and to make it commercial fruits in India. Hence, the present study was designed to observe the effect of different concentrations of 1-Methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) on physiological and biochemical parameters which have great influence on post harvest life and quality of kiwifruits. Kiwifruits cv. Allison was treated with different… CONTINUE READING
