Storage Temperature Effects on Cut Rose Varieties
Proper transport and storage conditions for cut roses can be difficult to maintain from the farms in Central and South America to the distribution chains in North America. Flowers can be exposed to long transport times and less than ideal temperatures. The objective of this study was to determine which cut rose varieties can withstand stressful storage conditions. Knowing which varieties can tolerate unfavorable conditions will assist in selecting tolerant varieties and, in turn, improve vase life and quality for the consumer.
