Our favourite fruit hibernates …

Our favourite fruit is – how could it be otherwise - the apple. To be able to enjoy it every day and not only during the apple season thousands of tons of freshly harvested apples are placed in so called “ULO” storages. “ULO” storage means storage in an atmosphere with low oxygen: “ultra low oxygen” stands for a process under low oxygen. In quasi hermetically sealed rooms the apples consume the oxygen and the oxygen content is reduced to 1 %, the carbon dioxide content increases to about 1,5 %. 92 % of humidity protects the apples from dehydration and they can “safely oversleep” the winter.
