•Evaluate the influence of chitosan/PVA loaded with ascorbic acid at different concentrations as a postharvest coating treatment on ‘Superior seedless’ grape cultivars.•Chitosan is one of them as a biopolymer that is non-toxic and has antimicrobial properties. Also, it is a good tool to provide a protection to fruit during handling and packaging processes.•Using a combination of chitosan/PVA coatings as the best edible method and biologically safe preservative coatings for different types of fruits, with physiological advantages, such as lower respiration rates, extended storage periods, and firmness retention.•And it extend the postharvest life of fruit by reducing water loss, gas exchange, and oxidative reaction rate.•Considering that chitosan and PVA can be safely used for postharvest of fruits and that natural extracts can be incorporated into chitosan/PVA blends.
