Experience the future of 1-MCP with Hazel 100.
Nearly 30 years ago, the invention of 1-MCP revolutionized the apple industry, helping big growers easily fumigate and preserve huge volumes of fruit. Since then, not much has been done to adapt the product to meet the needs of America’s small and mid-sized growers.
Hazel 100 has changed that — breaking down the barriers that traditional 1-MCP processes create and bringing the power of simple, effective 1-MCP to orchards of every size.
How Hazel 100 works
- Toss a Hazel 100 packet into the box or bin of apples
- The packet released 1-MCP into the atmosphere around the produce
- The 1-MCP binds to a majority of the apple’s ethylene receptors, slowing down the production and absorption of ethylene and delaying the aging process among treated apples in the bin.
- The box or bin treatment is complete.

A “game-changer” for quality and efficiency
The Hazel 100™ bin sachet has definitely been an asset in how we manage storage and quality of the fruit at storage and after. Gala is a variety that benefits greatly by using the sachets and we’ve seen great effect putting sachets in with Golden Delicious. We’re extremely impressed with the effect Hazel 100 has had on our quality.
We feel even more confident in our storage strategies knowing that we have Hazel® on our team. We’ve used Hazel products successfully and have seen better packouts, better arrivals, and found it extremely user friendly. We cannot wait to continue our partnership using Hazel’s products for apples this season.
Hazel’s bin sachet application allowed us to protect the fruit immediately which simplified receiving and storage logistics. This immediate treatment allows us to get the right fruit in the right storage timeframe. We were able to eliminate transferring of bins from conditioning rooms which greatly improved the process. This simplified process helps to produce excellent fruit condition for our customers.
