Abstract: A Laboratory experiment ’was carried out in Department of Horticulture at Post Graduate College, Ghazipur, UP` during 2018-2019 to study the response of different post harvest treatments on shelf life and quality of Dasheri mango. The post harvest treatments consisting of non perforated and perforated polythene bags, perforated and non perforated aluminium foil, cardboard box, 1% and 2% solution of calcium chloride and 1% and 2% solution of calcium nitrate. Fruits without any packaging materials and any post harvest treatment were compared as the control. The fruits kept in the non perforated aluminium foil statistically proved most effective to enhance the shelf- life of Dasheri mango. This post harvest treatment also sustains the fruit quality and appearance of fruits. Better appearance, enhanced shelf-life and sustained quality of fruits are beneficial to growers as well as consumers.
