The study was carried out to observe the effect of post harvest application of sucrose on extension of vase life of cut rose cv. Tajmahal. The data was recorded on the physical and physiological parameters on every alternate day. The flowers were held in different concentrations of sucrose solutions with flowers harvested at two stages i.e. tight bud stage and first petal unfurl stage. The study revealed that post harvest application of 6% sucrose in vase solution for the flowers harvested at tight bud stage was the best treatment and the vase life was extended up to 6.50 days under ambient conditions when compared to 4.00 days in flowers harvested at first petal unfurl stage.
