Abstract

The post-harvest management of fresh figs is a susceptible phase that could impair the quality standards. Given the high perishability, the marketing is limited around the production areas, using open punnet or modified atmosphere packaging, enabling the quality maintenance up to 7 and 14 days, upon the cv., storage temperatures and packaging systems. The paper shows the results of the effectiveness of an innovative packaging system endowed with a breathable device (Blow Device®, BD) for fresh fig storage. BD was evaluated in comparison with a sealed (S) and a macro-perforated film-based tray (MF), at 2 and 8 °C.
