Persimmon Postharvest Manual – Edition 2

The second edition (December 2017) of the Persimmon Postharvest Manual gives a broad overview of pre-harvest and postharvest issues than can affect quality and storage life.

Understanding all of these issues and utilising available tools and technology will result in a larger proportion of high quality fruit reaching intended markets. Short- and long-term storage options give growers the choice to store fruit during oversupply in the market.
