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.
