About Lesson
  1. Storage Temperature: Cabbage should be stored at a temperature between 0-4°C (32-40°F) and humidity of 90-95%. This cool temperature range will slow down the respiration process, reducing the rate of decay and maintaining the quality of the cabbage.

  2. Humidity: High humidity is important to keep the cabbage fresh, as it will prevent the cabbage from wilting and becoming dehydrated. A humidity level of 90-95% is ideal for storage.

  3. Ventilation: Proper ventilation is important to prevent the buildup of ethylene gas and to prevent mold growth. Cabbage should be stored in a well-ventilated area or in perforated plastic bags to allow for proper air circulation.

  4. Packaging: Proper packaging is important to protect the cabbage during transportation and storage. Cabbage can be packaged in perforated plastic bags or wrapped in wax paper to maintain the proper humidity level.

  5. Transportation: Cabbage should be transported in a refrigerated truck or container to maintain the proper storage temperature and humidity. The temperature should be maintained between 0-4°C (32-40°F) during transportation to prevent the cabbage from overheating and becoming damaged.

  6. Cleanliness: Cabbage should be stored and transported in a clean and sanitized environment. This will prevent the spread of pests and diseases and ensure that the cabbage remains fresh and of high quality.

By following these proper storage and transportation techniques, you can ensure that your cabbage stays fresh and of high quality during transportation and storage. Proper temperature, humidity, ventilation, packaging, transportation, and cleanliness can help to extend the shelf life of your cabbage and make it last longer.
