The researches carried on in ICDIMPH-Horting had in view to emphasize the influence of the variety and post-harvest temperature on quality preservation in fresh and dehydration of apricots from internal production. In this way, three varieties of apricots (Royal, Mari de Cenad, Cea mai buna de Ungaria), coming from the same orchard and being simultaneously harvested, were kept in different conditions (environmental temperature, refrigeration and cold storage) for testing the capacity of quality preservation of fresh fruits. At the same time,the apricots have been tested during dehydration process, the researches being focused on conduct, quality and output of the product. Taking into consideration losses level and the evolution of firmness and some chemical components, resulted that in environmental conditions Royal variety gave better results, Cea mai buna de Ungaria emphasized its good behaviour in refrigerated rooms and Mari de Cenad kept better quality than the others in cold conditions. Concerning dehydration, the results stated that the variety and maturity stage influence the output and duration of the process. The variety Mari de Cenad registered the highest drying ratio and the shortest time for dehydration process.
