This current project aimed to fill this void by identifying and assessing the post harvest physiology, handling and storage requirements of 8 major culinary herbs. Based on these findings, appropriate storage and atmosphere conditions for use with modified atmosphere packaging were tested and suitable post harvest handling and packaging methods developed. It is envisaged that the development of these methods will help facilitate the growth of new and existing local and export markets, by adding value, reducing quality loss and wastage and increasing the storage and shelf life of fresh herbs.
