Optimizing Postharvest Life of Cut Iceland Poppy
Each year a large number of new cultivars and species are made available from plant breeders, propagators, and suppliers. Specific postharvest information must be obtained for these new species as they are made available to the market. One new cut flower, the iceland poppy, has large spectacularly-colored flowers which are an instant hit with buyers (Fig. 1). This study determined the optimum handling procedures to extend the postharvest life of iceland poppies.
