  • Cold Storage

    Temptation peaches can be cold stored for up to 35 days, from the harvest date, at -0.5 °C. The cultivar is susceptible to woolliness if harvested at flesh firmness above 8 kg. Pre conditioning to a flesh firmness of 6.5 to 7 kg can be considered to reduce woolliness. Internal disorders develop exponentially during cold storage and cold storage should be as short as possible.

     

    For more information on woolliness and pre conditioning - see generic information [PE5] and for more information on handling after harvest, cooling and shipping see [PE4] and air freight see [PE10]
