​PEAKfresh is modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) made specifically for fruit and vegetables as well

as cut flowers and plants. With a natural mineral embedded in our products, we are able to modify the
composition of the air surrounding the packaged item in order to extend the initial fresh state of the
product. PEAKfresh has long been used by growers, shippers and retail chains to preserve the
freshness of produce during transit and storage. Most recently, NASA began using PEAKfresh to

extend the life of produce sent to and consumed by the astronauts at the International Space Station.

   CABBAGE

   Depending on the variety of cabbage and the availability of
   good storage facilities, it is possible to store cabbage around
   five months. Cabbage should be handled very carefully following
   harvest and only firm heads without yellowing or mechanical
   damage should be stored. Before storage, all loose leaves should
   be trimmed from the head. Cabbages are sensitive to ethylene
   damage which causes yellowing.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) 95% – 98% humidity.

​​
   Packaging Method:
   Pre-cooled dry cabbage heads can be stored in PEAKfresh carton liners that are folded closed at the top. Very good   

   results have been achieved in maintaining freshness by storing dry cabbage heads in individual PEAKfresh bags that
   are then stored in a waxed carton. For individual storage, it is important that the cabbage head be properly pre-cooled
   with core temperatures indicating 0ºC -1ºC (32º – 34ºF). It is important that loose leaves be removed from the heads of
   cabbage to improve ventilation. Cabbages may require further trimming before retail sale.
 
   Storage Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) 95% – 98% humidity.
