following year may be an alternative to this problem. In addition, no research on pollen quality based on storage of cherry pollen at chilling temperatures has been recorded. This study evaluated how the pollen of several sweet cherry cultivars responded

1-MCP is an inhibitor of ethylene perception that can delay fruit ripening and extend storage life. 1-MCP is marketed as SmartFresh™ for postharvest treatment and its use has become common practice in many apple-growing regions. 1-MCP reduces

( Coulibaly et al., 2011 ). Fungicides are of great importance for preserving fresh produce during storage. However, agrochemical residues in fresh produce have been the subject of contentious public discussions through the world among consumers, the media

elevated CO 2 and chilling conditions, making them susceptible to certain physiological disorders in storage, including external CO 2 injury and flesh browning ( DeEll and Ehsani-Moghaddam, 2012 ; Fawbush et al., 2008 ; Watkins and Nock, 2012

et al., 2007 ; Fan et al., 1999a , 1999b ; Watkins, 2006 ). 1-MCP affects the incidence of storage disorders in a variety of ways, depending on apple cultivar and storage regime. Superficial scald is generally reduced by 1-MCP ( DeEll et al., 2002

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
