Abstract: Studies were made on the combined effects of skin coating and wrapping with film and tissue paper on changes in physic-chemical, quality and shelf life of two cultivars of guava viz., Sarder and Allahabad Safeda held at room temperature 25+1 ºC (RT). Total weight loss of the fruits could be reduced significantly by Waxol treatment film wrapping. The peel colour development as measured by ‘L’, ‘a’ and ‘b’ values indicated, maximum increase in ‘L’ and ‘b’ values were observed in the control as compared to the treatments. There was a decrease in firmness, acidity, vitamin C and starch contents and an increase in reducing and total sugar contents. The shelf life could be extended from 5-6 days in the control to 8-9 days by waxol treatments and wrapping in paper.
