  • GroFresh®

    Contains 33g/ kg 1-methylcyclopropene in the form of a vapour releasing powder. GroFresh® is a powder that when mixed with hot water releases the volatile active ingredient 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP). GroFresh® is applied post-harvest to counteract many undesirable effects of both internal (produced by fruit) and external effects of ethylene on harvested fruit. By counteracting ethylene, GroFresh® provides many benefits to fruit during transport and storage including:

    • Maintaining firmness,

    • Maintaining titratable acidity,

    • Preventing superficial scald and soft scald on pome fruit,

    • Reducing internal ethylene production,

    • Protection from external sources of ethylene,

    • Reducing fruit aspiration,

    • Delaying ripening and senescence,

    • Reducing incidence of peel greasiness in apples,

    • Reducing incidence of core flush and mealiness in pome fruit, 

    • Reducing chilling injury.
