). Dry storage (i.e., dry after-ripening) is a very effective means of breaking tanglehead seed dormancy. Seeds that have undergone a dry after-ripening period exhibit faster germination rates ( Tothill, 1977 ) and high percent germination (80% to 90

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

‘Honeycrisp’ apples can be highly susceptible to the development of low temperature storage disorders such as soft scald (an external injury) and soggy breakdown (an internal injury) ( Lachapelle et al., 2013 , 2017 ; Tong et al., 2003 ; Wargo
