Studies on the production and shipping of high-quality broccoli. II. Effects of plastic films and wrapping method on the freshness of broccoli



Studies on the production and shipping of high-quality broccoli. II. Effects of plastic films and wrapping method on the freshness of broccoli



Research Bulletin of the Aichi ken Agricultural Research Center ( 23): 335-342



A storage atmosphere of 3-6% O2 and 6% CO2 at ambient temperature maintained quality without yellowing or injury. When the flower buds were wrapped in low density polyethylene film (15 mu m thick), quality was maintained for 3 days due to the modified atmosphere. Absorbents removed off-odours, but not sufficiently; this could possibly be improved using high permeability plastic film. If the CO2 level reached >10%, then stem softening and browning and yellowing of the flower buds was observed.
