If the temperature inside of dragon fruits are too cold, it will be soften and damaged. If it is not cool enough, the spines will go yellow, not good looking as fresh.
If a dragon fruit is kept in a right condition and temperature (+2 to +5C) during transit time and storing, its shelf life is about 4-6 weeks. In a room temperature, it is still fresh at least 1 week more during retail selling time.
So keep cool technology is the main factor that our dragon fruits from Vietnam can be shipped and sold to almost countries around the world.
