Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
2º to 5ºC (36º – 41 ºF) and 90% relative humidity. Pre-cooling as quickly as possible following harvest is very important. Temperature checks should be carried out on the flesh of melon to ensure the removal of field heat.
We recommend that PEAKfresh carton liners be used. More often than not, field heat remains a problem in the packaging and storage of Rock melons. Melons that have not been properly pre-cooled, prior to packaging, should not be placed in PEAKfresh carton liners. It is important that the air ventilation holes on the carton remain open
Around 5º to 7ºC (41º to 45ºF) and 90% humidity.
