Which temperature is recommended for storage and shipping pomegranate? 

Pomegranates are not hardy fruits as they may appear. They are as susceptible as apples to water loss and to physical damage by abrasions, impacts, compression, and vibration.

Careful handling to minimize physical damage and avoiding chilling injury are very essential to keeping the quality of pomegranates. The recommended temperature is 7C and relative humidity between 90 and 95%. 

Pomegranates should be promptly cooled to 7C as soon as possible after harvest and should be kept at the recommended temperature and humidity during transportation and storage to reach their maximum postharvest-life of 2 to 4 months, depending on the cultivar.
