Storage of carrots (variety 'Nantaise'): the influence of the storage atmosphere on flavour, decay and content of sucrose, glucose and fructose

Acta Horticulturae (38): 321-326
Storage of carrots (variety 'Nantaise'): the influence of the storage atmosphere on flavour, decay and content of sucrose, glucose and fructose
In 3-years trials carrots were stored at 1 deg C either in air or in various controlled atmospheres for 3 or 6 months. The best results were obtained in 3% O2 and 3-6% CO2 and in these conditions the loss of sucrose was limited to about 20% after 6 months.
