‘Cavendish’ banana is a worldwide banana cultivar which has a very short fruit shelf-life and quickly decreased qualities when its ripening is promoted. To find the methods on how to inhibit its fruit deterioration, this research was conducted to study the effects of applications of aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG), plastic wrapping, storage temperatures, and their interactions on the shelf-life and quality of 'Cavendish' banana fruits. This research was conducted in the Horticultural Postharvest Laboratory, Faculty of Agriculture, Lampung University from September to October 2014. Treatments were arranged in a completely randomized design with 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 plastic wrapping (with and without one layer of plastic wrapping), and the third factor was storage temperature (a room temperature and 20 °C). The results showed that (1) AVG significantly lengthened fruit shelf-life, but did not affect physical and chemical fruit qualities such as fruit firmness, weight loss, soluble solid and acid contents, and sweetness; (2) plastic wrapping significantly lengthened fruit shelf-life, decreased fruit weight loss, accelerated fruit softening, but did not affect chemical fruit qualities; (3) lower storage temperature significantly lengthened fruit shelf-life, inhibited fruit softening, increased soluble solid content and sweetness, but did not affect fruit weight loss and acid content; (4) a combined application of AVG, plastic wrapping, and low storage temperature was best in lengthening fruit shelf-life, but did not affect physical and chemical fruit qualities.
