"Cavendish‟ banana is marketed domestically on its early ripening stage after receiving ethylene gassing. Once its ripening is promoted, however, its fruit qualities are quickly deteriorated making its shelf-life very short. This research was conducted to study the effects of applications of aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG), chitosan, storage temperatures, and their interactions on the fruit shelf-life and quality of 'Cavendish' banana. This research was conducted in the Horticultural Postharvest Laboratory, Faculty of Agriculture, Lampung University from July to August 2014. Treatments were arranged in a completely randomized design, run in three replications, and laid out in a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial design. The first factor was AVG (with and without 1.25 ppm AVG), the second factor was chitosan (with and without 2.5% chitosan), and the third factor was storage temperature (a room temperature and 18 °C). The results showed that (1) AVG did not significantly affect fruit shelflife, physical and chemical fruit qualities such as fruit firmness, weight loss, soluble solid and acid contents, and sweetness; (2) 2.5% chitosan increased fruit shelf-life, but it accelerated fruit softening and increased fruit weight loss, and did not affect chemical fruit qualities; (3) lower storage temperature significantly lengthened fruit shelf-life and inhibited fruit softening, but did not affect physical and chemical fruit qualities; (4) no interaction was found among the three treatments, in fact, a significant effect of an individual application of chitosan or lower storage temperature dominated the effects of its combinations.
