For an export demand, mangosteen is commonly harvested when its rind color is reddish pink (stage 3). Having very thick rind, it is believed that mangosteen can survive from a high transpiration rate. Therefore, its fruit hardly receives any postharvest technology to lengthen its fruit shelf-life and maintain its high fruit qualities. This research was aimed at studying the effects of postharvest package of sugar-esther blend KD-112 and plastic wrapping applied to mangosteen fruit at ripening stage 3 in affecting fruit shelf-life and qualities. This study used a Completely Randomized Design, arranged in factorial 3 × 2. The first factor was KD-112 concentration (0, 7, and 14%), and the second one was plastic wrapping (without and with one-layer plastic wrapping). The results showed that (1) KD-112 prolonged significantly fruit shelf-life and slowed down softening, with the best result was shown by 14% KD-112 that significantly prolonged fruit shelf-life by 7.83 days longer; (2) plastic wrapping significantly prolonged fruit shelf-life by 4.83 days longer; (3) the two factors were significantly interacted with the best treatment combination was shown by 14% KD-112 and plastic wrapping which prolonged fruit shelf-life by 12.50 days longer than control with fruit qualities were mostly unaffected.
