STUDIES ON PRECOOLING AND STORAGE OF SOME VARIETIES OF SNAP BEANS
With regard to the weight loss the snap beans examined can be divided into 4 classes (reduced, medium, high, very high), tabling the cultivars as follows:
|reduced:||Jolanda, Astro, Topcrop|
|medium:||Corene, Rodeo, Saxa|
|high:||Arian, Blue Lake 274 and 290, Early Harvest, Orbit, Pico, Processor, Wade|
|very high:||Costant, Tendercrop, Contender.|
As for the chilling injuries, while some cultivars show nothing (Astro, Orbit, Tendercrop), the injuries are reduced in percentage for Arian, Blue Lake 274, Early Harvest, Processor, while in other ones they remain high (Blue Lake 290, Corene, Constant, Jolanda, Pico, Rodeo, Wade) or very high (Contender, Topcrop).
