non-browning

Description

from Okanagan's website:
"Fresh-cut fruit refers to convenient ready-to-eat fruit pieces that have been sealed in modified atmosphere or other specialized bags or containers and made available to the consumer. Such products have a shelf life of up to 21 days. Fresh-cut produce has been available since the late 1980's with fresh-cut carrots and salads mixes leading the way; but thus far fresh-cut fruit has been limited to melons, berries and other fruits that did not suffer from enzymatic browning. [...] .
OSF aspires to help the tree fruit industry gain a more prominent role in the fresh-cut market by developing commercial non-browning apples, pears, peaches and cherries. The fact that they don’t turn brown will reduce the cost of fresh-cut preparation and improve the quality of these products."
