Hi, Richard!



Sorry for the delay - life happens, even in the off-season! ;-)

 

Here are some of the extension websites I've been reading:

North Carolina has some excellent overviews on the different types of
cooling available for all produce.

I see a bunch of grocers that we deliver to still do this, place asparagus
in water, cut end down.  I think it is more of a food safety issue than a
crop quality issue.

 

Do you have a link to the extension file?
