Raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) is one of the most appreciated fruits in the world. According to FAO, the annual production in 202 was about 886.000 t, with Europe which reached the largest input (approximately 68%). Due to the perishable nature of the fruits, there is a continuous need for improving the storage condition. The aim of the paper is to present the influence of storage conditions on organic raspberry fruits. Raspberries from 'Plapink' cultivar, were harvested in 202 and stored in three different conditions: ) normal atmosphere (NA) with ˚C and 85% relative humidity (RH), 2) controlled atmosphere (CA) conditions with ˚C, 85% RH, 5% O2 and 5% CO2, and 3) CA conditions with ˚C, 85% RH, 5% O2, and 5% CO2 for 3 days followed by NA for 6 days. Several quality indicators and physiological parameters were assed in order to verify the variations during the storage period. The total phenolic content values in NA decreased with about 6.28% compared to the initial moment, but no decreases were recorded during 3 days of storage in CA.
