The shelf life of stonefruit, like peaches, plums, and nectarines, benefits from cold storage. Historically, other preservation methods have shown limited success. Now, Hazel 100 for stonefruit is capable of delivering a strategic dose of 1-MCP, which temporarily curbs the maturation process without damaging the fruit.

We are always evaluating potential cutting-edge technologies that will allow us to continue to further elevate the consumer experience of the products we grow,” said Jon McClarty, General Manager at HMC Farms. “Our research with UC Davis and Hazel Tech is a testament to our commitment to innovation.
Overall, the percentage of rejections were down about 5% so [Hazel 100] is definitely a technology that can be used going forward.
In our trials, we were able to show conclusively that in seven of the eight total varieties, there was stronger skin and firmer flesh due to Hazel 100. The Blanco Lab is committed to researching new post-harvest technologies related to fruit ripening and quality, and we are pleased to be working with Hazel Technologies on this new shelf-life solution for peaches, plums, and nectarines.
