    1-Methylcyclopropene(1-MCP) Apples Fresh-Keeping Agent

    By Darren Chan

    Updated Jun 17, 2021 

    1-MCP is a product widely used in apples around the world to improve eating quality and storability. Ripening of the fruit is initiated by ethylene, and in some cases this is also true. To a certain extent, the ripening process's speed is regulated by its concentration in the fruit. Fruits generally soften, and apples soften more rapidly when the ethylene content is high, but ethylene is also volatile in the fruit needed to stimulate the formation of flavor-producing substances... Vegetables: tomatoes, lettuce, celery, kale, potatoes, carrots, daylily, onions, toon, beans, broad beans, peas, broccoli, asparagus, coriander, cucumber, onions, leeks, garlic sprouts, (green, red) peppers, North Korea Thistle, cowpea, sweet corn, enoki mushroom, etc...
