Optimum Relative Humidity: 90-95%
Benefits of CA: Low O2 reduces the respiration rate and retards development of decay. Elevated CO2 helps maintain firmness. CA has not been shown to be effective in extending the storage life of fresh cranberries beyond that possible with conventional cold storage.
Benefits of Ethylene Removal: Cranberries are not sensitive to ethylene, nor do they produce appreciable amounts of ethylene. Ethylene removal confers no benefit.
Special Treatments Before Shipping: Poorly colored fruit can be held at 7-10°C for a few weeks to allow additional color development. Early harvested cranberries usually have greater storage potential than those harvested later. Increased handling leads to physiological and pathological breakdown. Cleaned and sorted cranberries can usually be held up to 2 months at 0°C or up to 3-4 months at 2-4°C.
Varietal Differences: Keeping quality is somewhat dependent upon variety. However, varietal differences have not been well documented.
Mixed Loads: Keep cold. Can be shipped in mixed loads.
Cautions: Oxygen less than 1% can cause off-flavors. Prevention of moisture loss is very important. Keep humidity high. Storage at 0°C may cause chilling injury or physiological breakdown. Cranberries keep best stored at 2-4°C.
