The present investigation on “Studies on Biochemical Changes in Immature Mangoes (Mangifera indica L.) cv Konsam Heinou of Manipur Using Different Skin Coatings during storage” was carried out during month of May-June of the year 2021 at Post Graduate Laboratory, Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Manipur. Freshly collected uniform sized mango fruits were picked, washed, cleaned and treated in the laboratory with various coatings, including castor oil (T1), palm oil (T2), coconut oil (T3), mustard oil (T4), aloevera gel (T5), paraffin wax (T6), cling film (T7), and no coating (T8). The experiment was framed in CRD (Completely Randomized Design) and repeated 3 times with 7 treatments and an uncoated treatment. The results obtained from the current investigation on biochemical changes in quality parameters the fruits treatments with cling film (T7) had minimum TSS, TSS : Acid ratio, reducing sugar and total sugar content with maximum acidity content while fruits coating with paraffin wax (T6) and cling film(T7) had maintaining of chlorophyll content up to 15th days of storage under ambient condition.
