In this study, few aspects regarding the influence of different storage condition upon the shelf life of some apple cultivars were highlighted. In the experiment following apple cultivars were used: 'Redix’, 'Rubinola’ and 'Golden Delicious’. All fruits were harvested at the harvesting ripeness time. Afterwards, the apple fruits were stored in different environments, which consists the experimental variants: natural ventilation, cooling storage, cooling storage by using micro perforated bag pre-package and cooling storage by using semipermeable plastic bag package introduced into plastic material boxes. The obtained results show that the fruit storage period ranges from 80 days for 'Golden Delicious’, 95 days for 'Redix’ and 'Rubinola’ in natural ventilation conditions to 130 days for 'Golden Delicious’ and 140 days for 'Redix’ and 'Rubinola’, in conditions of refrigerating storage and fruit semipermeable plastic bags package. Regarding the rotting process, the main pathogens involved were Gloeosporium album for 'Golden Delicious’ and Penicillium sp. for 'Rubinola’.
