Cold storage

Cold storage is intended to slow down
Fruit breath. With this it is possible to delay the period of
Maturation and decrease deterioration, which allows reaching markets
Distant. Once the papaya is packed, it is stored at temperatures
between 12-14 ° C. This temperature should be maintained until
arrival at the destination market, without interrupting the process of
cold storage. An increase in temperature by any
reason, it would generate an increase in the respiration of the fruit and the
condensation of water on it, which would trigger
premature ripening.
