Effects of storage temperature and packing method on the keeping quality of Cyprus carrots

, : Effects of storage temperature and packing method on the keeping quality of Cyprus carrots. Acta Horticulturae (38): 379-387

Carrots, Chantenay Red Core, were packed in nets with or without polyethylene liners, and stored at 1 or 10 deg C for up to 21 days either immediately or after 1 or 2 days at ambient temperatures (20-26 deg ), or held for up to 7 days. Rotting (mainly Sclerotinia and Rhizopus spp.) at 1 deg was negligible, irrespective of pre-storage treatment, but at 10 deg and ambient temperatures it amounted to 20 and 68%, respectively.
