Abstract Fangshan persimmon is one of the most important astringent persimmon cultivars. The combined use of postharvest treatments, 5% CO2 and 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), at two storage temperatures (1 °C and 20 °C) was evaluated to determine the change rules of persimmon nutritional quality during storage and a best storage method on astringent persimmon. Results show that Total phenols, soluble tannins and total flavonoids were significantly positively correlated to the DPPH (0.502 = r= 0.617, P < 0.01) and ABTS (0.604 = r = 0.646, P < 0.01) radical scavenging ability. Sucrose was significantly negatively correlated with fructose and glucose with r of -0.466 (P < 0.01), -0.290 (P < 0.05), respectively. Glucose was significantly positively correlated with fructose with r of 0.708 (P < 0.01). At the end of storage, the treatment with combined use of 1-MCP, 1 °C and 5% CO2 resulted in higher nutrient content (except for sugars) compared to other treatments. And in this treatment, persimmon can be stored up to 4 months. Therefore, using the combination storage technology of 1-MCP, 1 °C and 5% CO2 is the most effective way to prolong astringent persimmon storability and preserve high nutrients and high antioxidant ability.
