There are a number of cultivars being introduced into the UK that are subject to agreements between the growers and the ‘club’ operators.
It is anticipated that storage advice for cultivars such as Cameo, Jazz, Kanzi and Rubens will be provided from within the respective ‘clubs’.
Research on storage of Rubens, Zari and Cameo have been conducted at the Produce Quality Centre (NRI-University of Greenwich/NIAB EMR) on a series of trials for club members. The results are available through the respective clubs.
Since storage recommendations will be developed through trials done in commercial stores growers need to update themselves regularly with the latest information.
