Inhibition of apricot ethylene biosynthesis by CO2


Due to a large amount of 'Bergeron' apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) production (around 70 000 tons, nearly 50% of the French apricot production), this variety is frequently commercialized after cold storage at 1°C. Problem of chilling-injuries and/or quick evolution after cold storage are observed. Treatment with an ethylene inhibitor combined with a higher storage temperature could be a solution to maintain fruit quality up to the consumption. The objective of this study was to evaluate the practical and theoretical impact of CO2 treatment during a short storage period at 10°C.
