Acid lime Cv. Balaji (Citrus aurantifolia S.) is a subtropical in its climacteric requirements and originated from sub- tropical South- east Asia, which belongs to family Rutaceae. The present research was conducted at post-harvest laboratory, college of horticulture, Sri Konda Laxman Telangana State Horticultural University, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, during the year 2018-2019. Experiment was designated with two factorial completely randomized design with two factors viz., (A) Ethylene concentrations, (B) Number of pulsings were taken for test and executed with the objective: effect of post-harvest ethylene on respiration rate of Acid lime Cv. Balaji. The results concluded that very high doses of ethylene (20ppm) increase the rate of respiration in Acid lime Cv. Balaji. Optimum dose of ethylene (15ppm) induces the uniform degreening and better respiration than control.
