Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the storage conditions of apples (cv. Fuji) with water core incidence. In the first experiment, two temperatures (-0.5 and 0 degrees C) were combined with three storage conditions (cold storage and 1.1 kPa O2, 0.8 kPa O2 with 0 kPa CO2). In the second experiment, different controlled atmospheres (CAs) were evaluated: cold storage, 1.1 kPa O2/0 kPa CO2; 0.8 kPa O2 with 0 kPa CO2 and 1 kPa O2/2 kPa CO2 at 0 degrees C.
