Abstract: An experiment was carried out to find out the effect of ethylene absorbent (KMnO4) with different carrier materials on shelf life of banana cv. Nendran. The experiment comprised seven treatments viz., control and Talc 5g, 10g, 20g and kaolin 5g, 10g, 20g mixed with saturated solution of KMnO4. The experiment was laid out in completely randomized design with three replications. There was significant variation among the treatments in relation to shelf life and fruit quality characters such as color, firmness, weight loss, pulp to peel ratio, total soluble solids. With the progress of storage duration, color, firmness, weight loss, total soluble solids, pulp to peel ratio, disease incidence, content of banana pulp increased, Treatment having 20 g block of both carrier materials increases the shelf life of banana fruits followed by 10 g blocks of both carrier materials.
