Has anyone done any research on red cell (reversion) which can at times lead to "leakers"?  
Growers have experimented with shade cloth, shortening pick to clamshell times, shortening time to cooler, changing cooling temperatures, but nothing has proven to be consistently effective with the Prime-Ark 45.  
As competition continues to grow against the Prime-Ark 45 & other non proprietary varieties will quality issues be the end of the Prime-Ark/Freedom varieties?

Hi Dominic,  
I have a research proposal into NARBA to look at the reversion issue- the hypothesis being that keeping the fruit that goes into the box cool will mitigate to some measure the issue.
