Fruit and Vegetable Storage Rooms

  • Fruits and vegetables properly stored in cold rooms retain their freshness for longer periods of time. Optimal conditions can be created by setting the temperature and relative humidity.
  • There is a certain temperature and relative humidity at which each fruit and vegetable can be ideally stored.
  • Optimum storage requirements of the same fruit or vegetable may vary depending on the variety and the ecological conditions in which it is grown.
  • No matter the conditions inside a cold room for fruits and vegetables are, fruits and vegetables cannot retain their freshness indefinitely. The maximum period for freshness may vary from a few days to 5-6 months.
  • After these certain periods specific to each product, the stored product rapidly loses its quality and then deteriorates completely.
