Storage of 'Booth 8' and 'Lula' avocados in a controlled atmosphere (CA) of 2% O2 and 10% CO2 at 40°, 45°, and 50° F. for 20, 40, and 60 days resulted in more acceptable fruit than comparable storage in air. All 'Lula' and 63% of 'Booth 8' avocados were acceptable after 60 days in CA at 45°. No significant differences in quality were detected between 'Lula' or 'Booth 8' avocados stored in CA at 40° and those at 45°. 'Booth 8' fruit had less anthracnose decay at 40° but more internal chilling… CONTINUE READING
