Sweet pomegranates (Punica granatum L. cv Mollar de Elche) were cold-stored for 90 days. Curing at 33°C and 95% RH for 3 days before continuous storage at 2 or 5°C and 95% RH was tested for reducing chilling injuries. Alternatively, cycles of intermittent warming (IW) of 1 day at 20°C every 6 days at 2 or 5°C were tested. Control fruits were conventionally stored at 2 or 5°C and 95% RH, and a shelf life of 6 days at 15°C and 75% RH was included in the trials. At the end of the storage and shelf… CONTINUE READING
