Abstract

Fruits of peach (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) stored in a controlled atmosphere (CA) and intermittently warmed (IW) after 3 weeks of storage at 0°C retained better quality than did those stored in air with no warming (NW) through 6 weeks storage. Large plastic bags used as CA chambers maintained an average level of 1.4% O2 and 5.0% CO2 throughout the test. An inexpensive U tube manometer calibrated for flow rates of 3.5 to 25 liter/hr controlled the gas atmospheres within the plastic CA chambers.
