​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.

  GREEN ONIONS (GREEN SHALLOTS)

   It is difficult to store commercial quantities of green onions
   for more than a few days unless they are kept under
   refrigeration. The onions lose moisture content rapidly at
   temperatures above 5ºC; the leaves turn yellow and start to
   decay quickly. It is possible to store green onions for three to
   four weeks at 0ºC (32ºF) if moisture loss can be prevented.
   Packaging into polyethylene film liners aids in preventing
   moisture loss.

    Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) and 95 % to 100% relative humidity.

 
   Packaging Method:
   Pack the pre-cooled Green Onions (Green Shallots) into PEAKfresh carton liners that are folded closed at the top.
   It is important to pre-cool the onions prior to packing and to remove any surplus moisture as a result of washing.
   It is possible to store Green Onions (Green Shallots) beyond three to four weeks and we recommend that the
   product be carefully examined before extending the storage time beyond four weeks.
   Warning: the freezing point of Green Onions is approximately -1ºC. Pay particular attention to temperature control
   to avoid damage.
 
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) 95%- 100% humidity
