Produce Information / Storage Tips
Use a Bluapple® to absorb ethylene gas to extend the life of produce.
Beans - Snap; Wax; Green
Indications of Quality
Beans should be well formed and straight, bright in color with a fresh appearance, and tender but firm. Snap beans should snap easily when bent. Leaves, stems, broken beans, remaining blossoms, insect damage should not be present. Decreased quality during postharvest handling is most often associated with water loss, chilling injury, and decay.
Ideal Storage Conditions
Temperature: 40 to 45 F (4 to 7 C)
Relative Humidity: 95%
Approximate Storage Life: 7-10 days*
Ethylene Production: Low
Ethylene Sensitivity: Moderate
Gently wrap a damp HydroLiner™ around the produce. Place in a VeggieZips™ storage produce bag, and close. Re-dampen as necessary.
* Approximate storage life is an estimate of in-home storage length. Your results may vary significantly depending on how long produce is in transit or in stock at the market.
