cuttings of many species. Most of the published research has focused on methods for improving the storage longevity of cuttings by delaying postharvest leaf abscission and senescence. Investigations include the use of cold storage treatments ( Behrens, 1988

stored from 1 to 5 °C with 85% to 95% relative humidity (RH) ( Lutz, 1938 ; Silva et al., 1994 ; Takeda et al., 1983 ; Walker et al., 2001 ). The use of sulfur dioxide storage treatment on the quality of bunch grapes is cultivar-specific and with

storage life of blueberry fruit has previously been shown to be enhanced by harvesting less-mature fruit ( Ballinger et al., 1978 ; Beaudry et al., 1998 ; Galletta et al., 1971 ) and maintenance under a controlled atmosphere (CA) ( Beaudry et al., 1998

The primary functions of hypoxia (low oxygen) in the storage of perishables are to inhibit ethylene action, to reduce metabolic rate through respiratory inhibition, and to reduce cut surface browning ( Beaudry, 1999 , 2000 ; Burg and Burg, 1965

Multiple types of flesh browning can occur as storage disorders in ‘Honeycrisp’ apple ( Malus × domestica ) fruit. Three of the browning disorders that occur within the cortex have been previously described as “soggy breakdown” ( Watkins et al
