​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. 

   Peaches and nectarines are not stored for any length of time.
   It is possible to store peaches and nectarines from two to four
   weeks with very careful post harvest treatment and attention to
   temperature control. A side affect of long term storage is loss of
   flavor and texture. Peaches and nectarines both suffer from
   decay forming brown rot and both fruits are susceptible to
   shriveling. There are a number of proprietary dips available that
   help control surface bacteria

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) and 90-95% humidity.
   Packaging Method:
   PEAKfresh carton liners are not recommended for packaging peaches and nectarines unless careful attention has
   been made to post harvest treatment and strict temperature control can be maintained. We recommend that sheets
   of PEAKfresh be placed on the bottom of a box where fruit is bulk stored and a further sheet ofPEAKfresh across the
   top of the fruit in the box. Where preformed plastic trays are used or similar products, then we recommend the use of
   a precut sheet of PEAKfresh film across the top of the fruit. This has the benefit of maintaining humidity levels and a
   degree of protection against ethylene damage. An alternative is to usePEAKfresh Bubble Sheet.
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) and 90-95% humidity
   Important Please Read:
   All recommendations for the use of PEAKfresh products are given in good faith and based on proven field experience.
   Packaging method storage temperatures and humidity levels, transit and destination conditions are factors likely to
   affect the performance of PEAKfresh products and no liability for indirect or consequential damage can be accepted.
