Optimum Relative Humidity: 90-95%
Benefits of CA: Low O2may help prevent core flush, bitter pit and internal breakdown. Helps retain firmness, acidity, skin color and taste.
Benefits of Ethylene Removal: May help maintain firmness.
Special Treatments Before Shipping: Fruit should have calcium values greater than 5mg/100g fresh weight for good long-term storage.
Mixed Loads: Apples generate ethylene and so should not be shipped with ethylene-sensitive commodities such as kiwifruit, persimmon, carrots, celery, cabbage, lettuce, and some flowers and nursery plants. Apples may absorb aromas from onions, garlic, and potatoes.
Cautions: Cox's apples are chilling sensitive and should not be stored at less than 3°C. They are very sensitive to CO2injury and should not be exposed to greater than 1% CO2. Low O2 is beneficial down to 1%, but if O2 gets too low, the fruit develop an alcoholic taste. Cox's apples are susceptible to bitter pit, core browning, and core flush. High CO2can exacerbate the last two.
