AbstractApples cv. 'Jonagold' of the same quality were collected from four orchards in three European countries. The orchards differed in terms of longitude, latitude and microclimate. The apples were stored in controlled atmosphere storage for six months. Both after harvest and after storage the apples were compared in terms of physical and chemical properties. Differences in firmness, titratable acidity, total soluble solids, mass varied not >11%. Storability was little affected by harvest location. The sum of polyphenols was more strongly influenced by storage than by orchard location. The strongest degradation of flavonols after storage was in apples grown in the most southern region of harvest (Italy). The content of (+)- catechin and (−)-epicatechin depended on harvest location and its strong increase resulted in higher content of procyanidins and flavanols after storage. Changes in individual polyphenols were significant after storage and depended on harvest location.
