Abstract:

Storage at 4ºC with 95% RH was evaluated as the best condition to maintain the shelf life of gerbera flowers of different varieties. Flower buds were packed in plastic bag and immersed in water, and then stored at ambient and also inside cold room of Ecofrost. Post storage life of gerbera decreased with increase in storage duration. The cold room stored flowers had shown post dry storage life 2.5 hours in ambient condition, even after taken out after 13 days of cold storage.
