    cute How does Calcium Carbide ripen Mangoes ?

    For reason of safe transportaion of
    fruits, mangoes, bananas etc are picked
    before they ripen fully. Slightly green
    harvested mangoes are subjected to
    small containers of calcium carbide (CaC2)
    with a plastic covering. CaC2 reacts with
    moisture in air to release acetylene
    ( or ethyne ) gas which like ehyleneis- a
    chemical substance produced by fruits to
    accelerate the normal preocess of fruit
    maturation - is a ripening harmone.
    Industrial- grade calcium carbide comtains
    arsenic and phosporus and its use for
    purpose ripening is illegal in many countries.
