​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.

   PEAS

   Fresh garden peas and snow peas require immediate cooling
   following harvest to maintain their sugar and flavor.
   Hydro-cooling is the preferred method of reducing post harvest
   temperatures. Quick post harvest cooling and the maintenance
   of a high humidity will maintain greenness and avoid yellowing.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) and 95% – 98% humidity
  
   Packaging Method:
   Unshielded peas can be packed in 5 kg and 10 kg carton liners that folded closed at the top. Snow peas destined
   for repacking or food service are best stored in 2 kg and 5 kg PEAKfresh bags that are folded closed at the top.
   It is important that peas be packed without any visible moisture. It is unwise to dry peas because of their sensitivity
   to moisture loss.
 
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) and 95% – 98% humidity
