Optimizing Postharvest Life of Cut Dahlias
For years dahlias have been used as cut flowers, but most cultivars are not very uniform and have a poor postharvest life. A new series, >Karma= dahlias (Photos 1 and 2), produces multitudes of medium-diameter flowers on long, strong stems. This study examined the optimum handling procedures to extend the postharvest life of cut dahlias.
