Description

ExperiCo, formerly known as Capespan Technology Development, conducted storage evaluations on certain stone fruit cultivars recently released by the Agricultural Research Council (Infruitec-Nietvoorbij), namely: Alphine nectarine, and the plum cultivars, Sunkiss and Sundew. The evaluation of each cultivar, over a period of three to four seasons, was aimed at establishing the optimum packaging for best maintenance of fruit quality in export fruit.
