Taiwan is an island surrounded by the sea that experience an annual natural disaster that is known as the typhoon where damages caused by the disaster could not be estimated. As soon as the government issues the typhoon alert, the price of fruits and vegetables rise thirty percent immediately every time. Hence, consumers tend to restrict their expenses or change their usual eating habit which leads to the belief of an incompetent government. There is a saying: When a typhoon comes, the people and the government will suffer in life but someone called “vegetable insect” will get rich. Ethylene is the main factor that causes problems in the preservation of fresh fruits and vegetables. The method for this research is using a questionnaire survey conducted by interviewing experts in the frozen food industry. The result confirms that the effects of ethylene on the preservation of fruits and vegetables. The Taiwan guava is used as the preservation experiment material. The hardness of the fruit and the ripening degree to determine the effect of ethylene is tested. The purpose of this research is to extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables by effectively preventing ethylene contamination. This is all done under the premise that the fruits and vegetables are able to maintain its original flavour and serves as a reference for designing a new refrigerator.
