Significant variation was noticed between Amritasagor and Sabri in terms of most of the characters studied. Physicochemical changes, namely physiological weight loss, pulp to peel ratio, moisture content, dry matter content, sugar (total, reducing and non-reducing) content, pulp pH and TSS content increased whereas titratable acidity and vitamin C content decreased with the advancement of storage times from the treated and untreated bananas. Bananas without treatment accelerated the physiological weight loss at the highest magnitude. On the other hands, GA3 using 400 ppm solution acted better in retardation of ripening processes that restricted the physiological weight loss and prolonged the shelf life (13.0 days) of bananas followed by other treatments such as paraffin coating, hot water (52±2)°C treatment, 750 ppm of bavistin DF and 400 ppm of maleic hydrazide. Therefore, variety Sabri using 400ppm of GA3 solution was a suitable method for delay ripening and extending of shelf life of bananas which might be easily adopted by common farmers.
