An experiment was conducted to study the effect of postharvest treatments on shelf life and quality of Alphonso mango fruits during storage under various environments. For this purpose, fully matured Alphonso mango fruits were subjected to the various treatments of waxol (6%) and calcium chloride (2%) alone and coupled with carbendazim (0.1%) and captain (0.2%). These treated fruits and untreated lot (as control) were kept for storage at room temperature (27.18 -32.57°C with 47.50 - 74.00% RH), cool chamber (21.36 - 23.15°C with 81.00 - 91.50% RH) and in cool storage (10°C with 85% RH). Results indicated that the Alphonso mango fruits treated with calcium chloride (2%) + waxol (6%) + carbendazim (0.1%) could be kept upto16 days at room temperature, 22 day in cool chamber and 28 day in cool storage.
