Susceptibility to postharvest disorders in some red pears: preliminary indications

Susceptibility to postharvest disorders in some red pears: preliminary indications

Rivista di Frutticoltura e di Ortofloricoltura 58(4): 57-59

The results are presented from a preliminary varietal screening for keeping quality (including storage disorders and postharvest losses) in the red-fruited varieties Rosada and Rosired Bartlett. The fruits of both kept for 2 months with normal refrigeration and 4 months in a controlled atmosphere (O2 4%, CO2 2-2.5%). This could be extended to 5 months in Rosired Bartlett if low oxygen percentages were used in the controlled atmosphere (1.2-1.5% O2 and <1% CO2).
