Abstract: Commercial ripening is an essential part of fruit business as ripe fruits are not suitable to carry and distribute due to their fast rottening. Therefore, fruit traders pick unripe fruits and utilize different methodologies to fasten the ripening process of fruits. The present study is aimed at investigating potential of apple as a ripening agent as an alternative to the indiscriminately used ripening agent, calcium carbide, which is reported to be carcinogenic in nature. The study indicated that apple can also hasten the ripening process of banana similar to the synthetic chemicals and can be exploited as a natural and safer mode for fruit ripening.
