Depending on the variety of cabbage and the availability of good storage facilities, it is possible to store cabbage around five months. Cabbage should be handled very carefully following harvest and only firm heads without yellowing or mechanical damage should be stored. Before storage, all loose leaves should be trimmed from the head. Cabbages are sensitive to ethylene damage which causes yellowing.
Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
0ºC (32ºF) 95% – 98% humidity.
Packaging Method
Pre-cooled dry cabbage heads can be stored in PEAKfresh carton liners that are folded closed at the top. Very good results have been achieved in maintaining freshness by storing dry cabbage heads in individual PEAKfresh bags that are then stored in a waxed carton. For individual storage, it is important that the cabbage head be properly pre-cooled with core temperatures indicating 0ºC -1ºC (32º – 34ºF). It is important that loose leaves be removed from the heads of cabbage to improve ventilation. Cabbages may require further trimming before retail sale.
Storage Temperatures
0ºC (32ºF) 95% – 98% humidity.
