In this research it is aimed to determine the avaliblity of different packaging materials for Roxana, Hungarian Best and Bebeco apricot cultivars stored in modified atmosphere conditions. For this aim, after harvesting, apricots were packed with LDPE and PVC packaging materials and some apricots stored with none application called as control. Packed apricots was put in cold storage in 0°C and 95% relative humidity for 30 days. After storage, weight loss, fruit firmness, fruit skin colour, soluble solid content, titretable acidity, total sugars and taste were determined. According to the data after 30 day of storage, LDPE and PVC apllications were found to improve not only all the quality parameters but also storage qualifications of the apricot fruits.
