Refrigeration and the effect of ColdHubs on apple

All apples can spoil.  One of the reasons, apples spoils is bacteria, mold and fungus.

Refrigeration slows the growth of these microbes. In doing so, it buys you a little bit of time between the time your fruit is fully ripe and the time it starts to deteriorate. As a 100% solar powered walk-in refrigerator, designed for outdoor installation, ColdHubs extends the shelf life of apples, from 5 days to a minimum of 21 days - it can keep apples more than that actually. ColdHubs keeps apples fresh and crisp, reducing the quantity of apples lost every year due to lack of on-farm and in-market refrigeration. The apple is just “one” in the long list of fruits, vegetables and other perishable food kept fresh inside the ColdHubs.
