Fruits and vegetables properly stored in cold rooms retain their freshness for longer periods of time. Optimal conditions can be created by setting the temperature and relative humidity.
There is a certain temperature and relative humidity at which each fruit and vegetable can be ideally stored.
Optimum storage requirements of the same fruit or vegetable may vary depending on the variety and the ecological conditions in which it is grown.
No matter the conditions inside a cold room for fruits and vegetables are, fruits and vegetables cannot retain their freshness indefinitely. The maximum period for freshness may vary from a few days to 5-6 months.
After these certain periods specific to each product, the stored product rapidly loses its quality and then deteriorates completely.
