Improving low-oxygen controlled atmosphere storage for Gala apples.

University of Greenwich

Project objectives

In recent years, changes to how Gala apples are stored with lower oxygen have meant that the time the produce could be kept has increased from 7 to 10 months. However, there can be challenges with quality. This project will explore improving the long-term, low-oxygen, storage of Gala apples to extend the UK marketing season.
