​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. 


   Rambutan is a tropical fruit that requires careful handling to   
   avoid bruising. The fruit is considered to be an ethylene
   producer and is also sensitive to the presence of high levels
   of ethylene gas. Rambutan is also very sensitive to chilling
   injury when stored at temperatures below 12ºC. It can be
   stored successfully in PEAKfresh for around three weeks
   following harvest. It is important to slowly reduce the
   temperature of the fruit flesh following harvest with careful
   attention to avoid chilling damage.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   l2ºC (54ºF) and Relative humidity 90% to 95%

   Packaging Method:
   Small quantities of rambutan can be placed in PEAKfresh bags so long as the fruit has been properly pre-cooled to
   around l2ºC (54ºF). When PEAKfresh carton liners are used to package rambutan, the carton liner should be folded
   flat at the top and not sealed with a twist tie. Where there are likely to be difficulties in maintaining a temperature of
   around 12ºC (54ºF), then we recommend that the fruit be packed into a carton using a sheet of PEAKfresh in the
   bottom of the carton and a separate sheet of PEAKfresh across the top of the fruit making sure that the carton
   ventilation holes remain open.
   Storage Temperatures:
   12ºC (54ºF) and 90% to 95% humidity
   Important Please Read:
