Controlled-atmosphere storage of apples

Controlled-atmosphere storage of apples

Deciduous Fruit Grower 32(6): 226-237

Data are presented from 3-year trials with Golden Delicious, Starking and Granny Smith apples stored in CA storage with different gas mixtures or in air, both at -0.05 deg C, under laboratory and commercial conditions for 7, 7.5 and 8.5 months for each cv., respectively, followed by holding at room temperature for 7 days. With Golden Delicious and Starking the best results were obtained in 3% CO2 and 3% O2, and with Granny Smith 0% CO2 and 3% O2.
