In this study, changes in the quality of 'Kordia' sweet cherry fruit harvested at different dates and stored in modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) were investigated. Fruits were picked at three different dates (P-1: early; P-2: optimum; P-3: late) at intervals of 5 d. Harvested fruit were stored at 0°C under MAP (Life Pack® bag for cherry) for 6 weeks. During storage, fruit quality analyses were made at intervals of 2 weeks. Weight loss of early- and late-picked fruit was greater than that of fruit from the optimum harvest date. The respiration rate was higher in the early- and late-picked fruit than those from the optimum harvest date. The respiration rate increased during storage for harvest dates. The total soluble solids decreased as harvest date progressed and with increasing storage time. The L∗and a∗values of the fruit decreased as harvest date progressed and with increasing storage time.

'Granny Smith' apples are susceptible to development of the physiological disorder superficial scald during long-term cold storage. The effects of controlled atmosphere (CA) storage, dynamic CA (DCA) storage, and CA plus 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) on fruit quality and superficial scald were investigated in this study. Fruits were treated with 1 μl/L 1-MCP for 24 h at 20°C, and then exposed to CA (1% CO2 and 1.5% O2), untreated fruits exposed to CA or to DCA (0.7-0.8% O2) storage at 0°C up to 10 months. Apples were removed at 2-month intervals and assessed after a shelf life period of 10 days at 20°C. The most successful method for maintaining fruit firmness, green ground color and titratable acidity, and to prevent superficial scald, was CA+1-MCP. Source
