The fruit of kiwi is rich in nutrients and is deeply loved by people. However, the storage period is not long, and the shelf period is short and easy to be soft. In this experiment, the effects of ascorbic acid on the post-harvest storage of kiwifruit were studied by measuring the quality of the fruit with a solution of 100 mmol·L-1ascorbic acid based on the fruit of 'Jinshi No. 1'. The results showed that ascorbic acid treatment reduced fruit quality, reduced fruit hardness and reduced weightlessness in 7-14 days compared with control (CK). Malonaldehyde showed a smaller decrease. Therefore, it is considered ASA treatment can improve fruit quality and antioxidant properties, and it is an alternative method for storage and preservation of kiwifruit after harvest.
