Elimination of weight losses during cooling of nectarines lengthened the holding period of the fruit by 50% before shrivel appeared in these tests. Air velocity and relative humidity are the critical factors, but changing requirements from the cooling to storage phases make it inadvisable to use one room for both purposes at the same time.
