This study was conducted on the effect of wrapping material and cold storage duration on plum (cv. Shablon) during cold storage at -1°C temperature and 98% relative humidity. Three wrapping materials (news paper + straw, kraft paper and kraft paper + straw) and five cold storage durations (0, 8, 16, 24 and 32-day) were investigated for some quality characteristics of plum including water content, total soluble solids (TSS) and firmness. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Completely Randomized Design (FCRD) with four replications for each one of factors.

The market for organic food products in the Netherlands is growing; however, supply shortages are hampering the grow th of the market. The Republic of South Africa (RSA) has the advantage of being able to produce organic food products during the European winter seas on, as it is located in the southern hemisphere. Sourcing organic products from the RSA could therefore amelio- rate the current shortness of supply.
