Quality changes in fresh-cut pear slices as affected by controlled atmospheres and chemical preservatives
Strawberries are extremely perishable and have unusually demanding postharvest handling requirements. Even under ideal conditions they can rarely be kept for more than 7 days after harvest. They must be cooled immediately to their lowest safe temperature (32 to 34 F) to prevent overripening and decay, and they must not be allowed to rewarm.
