Fruit quality characteristics such as color, firmness and storage potential have long been known to be related to the concentrations of certain fruit minerals [1]. Fruitlet analysis allows commercial fruit growing, packing and marketing operations to take advantage of these known relationships and increase profit margins by supplying information that can be used to increase fruit quality and reduce storage losses and market claims. Considering the importance of nutrient levels for the success of long term storage, mineral analysis of fruit allows us to determine the concentration of these elements. This paper presents a brief overview of the mineral content of some Romanian apples stored in refrigeration and controlled atmosphere conditions for 6 months.
