Compatibility & Temperature
Strawberries are special. Too soft to be picked by machine, too delicate to be graded on a moving belt, too perishable to go unrefrigerated – even for short periods. Unlike other row crops that are planted, grow to maturity, and are then bulk harvested, strawberries continuously produce new blooms and fruit for as long as the weather cooperates. Today’s varieties are ever-bearing, and you can see blossoms right next to green and mature berries all season long.
Group 1 - 32 to 36o F (0 to 2o C); 90 to 95% humidity; do not ship with tomatoes, green beans, citrus or tropical fruits; precool for best results and do not load in the back or against trailer walls.
Ice contact not recommended; freezing injuries include dull, watery, and translucent appearance. Note temperature if these symptoms appear, as these injuries can be from other causes as well; remove pallet covers for storage, best at 32 to 36o F.
