​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.

   TURNIPS

   Mature good quality turnips can be stored successfully for up
   to five months in PEAKfresh carton liners. Turnips that have
   been damaged during harvest and have surface cuts should
   not be considered for long term storage. At temperatures above
   5ºC (40ºF) turnips are subject to the development of decay.
   Turnips should be stored with tops removed. It is possible to
   store turnips immediately following harvest in ventilated   
   PEAKfresh bin liners. An adequate supply of air ventilation
   is essential.

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

   Packaging Method:
   Good quality turnips, which have been properly pre-cooled, are packed dry into PEAKfresh carton liners that are
   folded closed at the top. The carton should have ventilation holes but not necessarily be waxed. To avoid decay,
   do not store turnips above 5ºC (40ºF) maintain good air ventilation during storage in cartons.
 
   Storage Temperatures:
   OºC (32ºF) humidity 95%
