When you say, "fresh cut fruit" are you talking about keeping harvested fruit fresh for shipping, or are you asking about preserving fruit for long periods of time?

It is also important to know which fruit.    there are many ways to preserve fruit,  from dehydrating, and pickling, to freezing,  as for shipping,  refrigeration, comes to mind.  but all this depends on which fruit.

Depends on what it is and it's textremely, water content,how it oxidizes etc.Some do well with plastic wrap,some need a little drying,some need to be chilled etc.It all depends of what fruit we are talking about.Some need lime juice rubbed over the exposed it.Which species are we talking about?
