Storage of ‘Fuji’ apple fruit in a high CO2 (3 kPa) and low O2 (1.5 kPa) controlled atmosphere (CA) reduced firmness and titratable acidity (TA) loss during long term storage. This CA environment also induced development of internal CO2-injury (brown-heart) and slowed the disappearance of watercore. The symptoms of internal CO2-injury were first detected 15 days after CA establishment and the severity increased during the first 4 months of CA-storage. Delaying establishment of CA conditions for… CONTINUE READING
