The aim of this paper is to present preliminary data regarding the sensorial analysis and customers’ perception on some hybrid kiwifruit, in different moments after harvesting. The plants were grown in the Experimental Field of Faculty of Horticulture, at the USAMV of Bucharest. The fruits were harvested starting in the beginning of October and finished at beginning of November. They were stored in two different conditions. At the time of consumption maturity, fruit analyses regarding flesh firmness, soluble solids (SSC) and vitamin C content, were performed for each genotype. Sensorial analyses were realized using a panel of consumers selected by age, gender and origin. The fruit size and shape, fruit pulp colour, taste and flavour were evaluated by awarding grades from 1 to 5. The results showed that the customer’s preferences are influenced by gender, age and origin. The new kiwi hybrid selections were highly appreciated, most of the kiwifruit interspecific hybrid genotypes Actinidia deliciosa x Actinidia chinensis receiving higher scores than the single species varieties.
