1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), an ethylene antagonist, is an effective device to improve the shelf life and quality of fruits, vegetables and ornamentals. It also represents an useful tool in studies aimed at clarifying the ethylene physiology in plants. Peaches and nectarines are climacteric fruits which exhibit a sharp rise in ethylene synthesis at the onset of ripening associated with changes in colour, texture, aroma and other biochemical features.
