Abstract—'California‘ papaya (Carica papaya L.) is a newly released cultivar that is increasingly popular in Indonesia both as domestic and export markets. It has a very short shelf-life with quickly decreases of fruit qualities. Postharvest handlings to extend its fruit shelf-life and to maintain its high quality fruit are greatly needed.The objectives were to study the effects of sugar ester blend solution of KD-112 and plastic wrapping in extendingfruit shelf-life and maintaining high fruit qualities of ‗California papaya.The results showed that as sole applications, fruit coatings of KD-112 and one layer plastic wrapping extended significantly 'California‘ papaya fruit shelf-life and maintained high fruit qualities. The combined application of 7% KD-112 and one-layer plastic wrapping was recommended to be applied as a postharvest handling for 'California‘ papaya because it was capable of delaying fruit ripening and maintaining high fruit qualities up to 21 days storage, 13-16 days longer than control.
