This Week's Forecast: These Sundrop Apricots should be readily available at Shasta til early April.

Proper Storage: Even under the best storage and handling conditions (32°F and 90-95% RH), stonefruits have a limited postharvest life. Temperature management is the best tool commercially available to delay the onset of IB (internal breakdown). Storage below 32°F but above the freezing point is beneficial to delay IB symptoms and extend market life.
