Preservation of carrot quality under various storage conditions

Acta Horticulturae (38): 327-337

Preservation of carrot quality under various storage conditions

Lange Rote Stumpfe ohne Herz and Bauer's Kieler Rote carrot cvs, each grown at 2 different places, were given various pre-storage treatments and then stored at 0.5 deg C for up to 21 weeks either in 5% CO2 and 16% O2 or in 1 or 3% CO2 and 1.5-5% O2. Cleaning + drying was the most effective pre-storage treatment. Weight loss in stores with jacket cooling amounted to 5%, compared with 11% in those with internal cooling.
