​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.

  TOMATOES

   Tomatoes are harvested at two intervals. Mature green and
   colored red ripe. Mature green tomatoes will slowly ripen,
   when stored in PEAKfresh bags at between 18º-20ºC (66º-70ºF)
   with 90% humidity. Green tomatoes must not be stored below
   13ºC (54ºF).  Ripe tomatoes can be stored in small quantities in
   individual sealed PEAKfresh bags or in a carton liner for boxes
   up to 10kg. Packaging in excess of 10kg should use PEAKfresh
   sheet in the top and bottom of the box with box air holes
   remaining open.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   Mature Green Tomatoes – l3ºC (54ºF) and 90 – 95% humidity
   Red Ripe Tomatoes – 7ºC (44ºF) and 90 – 95% humidity
 
   Packaging Method:
   As above, ensuring that fruit is pre-cooled and has no seen
   surface damage. Green tomatoes can be stored 2-4 weeks and
   7 days for red ripe tomatoes.
 
   Storage Temperatures:
   Mature green- not below l3ºC (54ºF) and 90 – 95% humidity
   Red Ripe – not below 7ºC (44ºF) and 90 -95% humidity
