Cabbage production is problematic in hot climates, since it grows best in a temperature range of 16 to 18°C. In Israel the best production time is fall and winter, but to allow for year round supply cultivation and storage is necessary in the spring and summer months. Eight red and ten white cabbage cultivars were grown in net houses during the spring and their growth characteristics were examined. After harvest in June, two red and seven white cultivars were stored for 127 days at 1°C in regular air and in controlled atmosphere (3% O2, 6% CO2). Regular air storage for an extended period was not suitable because all the cultivars developed unacceptable weight loss, external leaf browning, decay and black spot. Controlled atmosphere enabled storage for this period of time, but some cultivars stored better than others. The red cultivars, ‘Kojak’ and ‘Kosero’ showed good storage potential. Three white cultivars, ‘Cheers’, ‘Proctor’ and ‘Proctor-Cems’ stored better than the other white cultivars. © 2019 International Society for Horticultural Science. All rights reserved.
