Onion is grown in more than 160 countries ( FAO, 2014 ) and is ranked consistently as the third highest valued vegetable crop in the United States ( U.S. Department of Agriculture, 2016 ). Long-day storage cultivars are used extensively on every

storage ( Mattheis, 1996 ; Schrader et al., 2008 ). “Stain” symptoms are typically browning or discoloration that begin to appear 1–2 months after harvest ( Schrader et al., 2008 ) on the periphery of sunburned or sun-exposed areas of the peel ( Felicetti

The effects of temperature and gas atmosphere on fresh produce physiology and quality have been extensively studied to the point where optimal storage conditions for most products are widely available ( Anon., 2006 ; Gross et al., 2004 ). However

Techniques that slow ripening of apple are valuable tools that can maintain fruit quality during cold storage. Aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG) inhibits the pyridoxal phosphate-linked enzyme aminocyclopropane synthase (ACS) activity ( Capitani et al

-specific or postharvest softening-specific genes for various cell-wall–modifying enzymes have been characterized or cloned from apple, but data on how transcript levels of these genes change during storage is lacking. β-Galactosidase increases wall porosity

Most storage losses in the Swedish apple industry are caused by bruising and fungal decay. Harvesting and postharvest operations (especially grading, packing, and distribution) can cause a high degree of fruit bruising, resulting in a marked
