Ripening and quality responses of mamey sapote fruit to postharvest wax and 1-methylcyclopropene treatments

Ripening and quality responses of mamey sapote fruit to postharvest wax and 1-methylcyclopropene treatments

Postharvest Biology and Technology 36(2): 127-134

Mamey sapote (Pouteria sapote (Jacq.) H.E. Moore and Stearn) fruit is highly appreciated in the Caribbean region; however, marketable life is significantly limited by abrupt softening during postharvest handling. Postharvest wax and 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) treatments were evaluated for potential of extending mamey sapote postharvest life.
