‘Crystal’ guava fruit is economically important and freshly sold in Indonesian markets. It’s very thin skin and climacteric-typed fruit make its shelf-life short and its fruit qualities quickly decreased due to high transpiration and respiration rates. 1-methylchyclopropene (1-MCP) is one of anti-ethylene that is believed to block responses to ethylene so that fruit ripening is hindered. By its applied combination with one-layer plastic wrapping and lower storage temperature, lengthened shelf-life and maintained high fruit quality are expected to be accomplished. The objectives of this research were to study the effects of application of 1-MCP, plastic wrapping, storage temperatures, and their interactions on the shelf-life and qualities of 'Crystal' guava fruits. The results showed that while the one-layer plastic wrapping significantly lengthened the fruit shelf-life of more than 11.75 days, decreased fruit weight loss, and maintained high fruit qualities, the applications of 1-MCP and lower storage temperature of 20 °C did not significantly affect the fruit shelf-life and qualities of ‘Crystal’ guava. No interaction was found among treatments applied. In fact, the significant effect of coating with one-layer plastic wrapping simply dominated over the other treatments.
