This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of fruit quality, ethylene evoluoon and storage in apple 'Tsugaru' as influenced by aminoethoxyvinylglycine(AVG) and several surfactants. When treated with AVG+Silwet L-77, there were few significant differences in soluble solid and acidity as compared with control, but dichlorprop treatment significantly increased in soluble solid and decreased in acidity. Color development was decreased when treated with AVG+Silwet L-77. AVG+Silwet L-77 treatment decreased in ethylene evolution, and increased in storage. It can be concluded that fruit can be left in trees longer and still maintain storage, and more fruit is able to go to fresh market into long-term storage, which increase the market-ability of apple.
