Sweet cherry is a profitable fruit with a high commercial value. However, the storage period and market life of fresh cherries are always limited by postharvest senescene. 


The physiologic and biochemical changes are related to fruit ripening, such as skin color, sugar, organic acid metabolism, and fruit softening. The weather of its harvest season is usually hot and rainy hence unfavorable for storage and transportation. Consequently, significant postharvest losses occur with a short storage life and even at low temperature; the physiologic and biochemical changes are related to the fruit ripening, therefore, searching adaptive technologies of preserving and keeping fresh cherries is rather important and urgent.

It is well known that fruit is partially controlled by ethylene. Sweet cherry, as a nonclimacteric fruit, reveals that ethylene is considered to have an apparent effect on its ripening and senescence. During storage, the respiratory rate and ethylene production of the fruit can be significantly enhanced by exogenous ethylene.

1-MCP, an ethylene action inhibitor, can significantly delay the ripening of the cherries. Application of 1-MCP at low concentrations, prior to the climacteric increase, is effective and delays the onset of the climacteric peak of CO2 and ethylene production.

Postharvest treatment of 1-MCP significantly reduced endogenous ethylene production in cherry fruits 60 days after cold storage when compared to untreated fruits. In conclusion, 1-MCP treatment could be a good candidate for maintaining postharvest quality of cherry, and 1-MCP could prolong the storage life of sweet cherry.
