Abstract
A review of different articles related to artificial ripening was done. Focus was given on the hazards and applications of calcium carbide for artificial ripening, being a very common practice in Nepalese Market. Litterateurs showed many hazardous aspects of carbide use and also standard procedures of safety handling aspects. But being banned by regulation, due to its hazardous aspects and lack of proper handling methods among users, it was concluded that the use of calcium carbide is to be strictly monitored and controlled.
