We examined the eﬀects of 1-MCP concentration Ethylene (0.1–10 mg/L) and immersion time (0.5–5 min) on the shelf-life of muskmelon (Cucumis melo L. var. reticulatus L. Ethylene receptor Naud) fruit. Regardless of ripening stage at harvest or storage temperature, 1-MCP immersion improved the Phytochemical retention of ﬁrmness
